Local folk-rockers Saintseneca just announced a new round of fall shows, including a September 28 Columbus date at Land-Grant Brewing where the band will serve as the headliner for the brewery’s five-year anniversary celebration. (Expect more details in the coming weeks.)

The band also premiered a new video for “Wait a Minute,” which features tour footage shot as the band performed behind 2018 album Pillar of Na.

“Driving around one eve, I had reached my destination, but I just sat in my parked van and listened to this song drifting in from the local bluegrass radio show,” frontman Zac Little said in a press release accompanying news of the video. “The vocals were so sweet, sad, haunting. It was the first time I heard The Seldom Scene's version of 'Wait a Minute'. It lodged itself in my mind, until one day I discovered I was playing it over some chords on the bass. This video is a simple collection of tour documentation - a diary, if you like. Maybe it offers a little glimpse of the joy of being with friends, playing music, adventuring all over, but also the bittersweet twinge that comes with missing folks you love back home.”
