Also out is an accompanying video for ‘HOLD YOU DOWN’, which was directed by Najeeb Tarazi and features home video footage from lead singer Sam Harris and his brother, keyboardist Casey Harris’, childhood growing up in Ithaca, NY.

“’Hold You Down’ is a song about devotion”, says X Ambassadors lead singer Sam Harris. “Saying to that one person / those people in your life, ‘no matter what happens, I will always be there for you’.My brother and I have lived through a lot together over the last 30 years, so I dedicate this one to us”.
X Ambassadors will follow up the release of ORION performing album release shows in five cities across the US where they will showcase new material from the record plus fan favourites. The band recently performed a sold-out headline date at London’s Scala as part of their European tour and will continue this Autumn touring in the US.
