"For "As The Light Fades", instead of making a traditional music video, we decided to do something different. Before we left for tour, we were fortunate enough to get as many of our family members together as we could and make ourselves a little time capsule.

With all of us moving into different phases of life with marriages, kids, etc., we wanted to take a snapshot of this time in our lives that we could look back on fondly, and also immortalize some of the people that we love most in the world because you never really know how much time you get with them."

- Matt James

BLACKTOP MOJO releases the official music video for "As The Light Fades" - a track totally unlike anything they've created before, on their recent full-length studio album, Pollen, which was released on April 5th. "As The Light Fades" is a feel-good anthem and a passionate track that oozes with infectious energy of summer and young love.

Watch the video now on KNAC.COM HERE.

BLACKTOP MOJO's classic rock influences shine through with powerful guitar riffs, while their infamous 'Southern grunge' makes its mark in the vocals and twangy instrumentation.

"As The Light Fades" is a nostalgic look at young infatuation that turns into life-long love, from running inside when the streetlights come on all the way to the last tender kiss shared before crossing into The Great Beyond." -Matt James, lead vocals for BLACKTOP MOJO

"As The Light Fades" definitely had all the feel-good classic rock n' roll vibes, a style we hadn't really touched before in previous albums. We honestly couldn't be happier with the result, especially after having Rob McNelly, who has played for Bob Segar, add some guitar to it."

- Matt Curtis, bassist for BLACKTOP MOJO

The origin of the song started in 2021 with a Bob Segar-style melody created by Matt Curtis and Matt James on the porch of their shared 'band house'. In no time, it progressed into a full-on classic rock n' roll hit, with additions from Rob McNelley (guitarist for Bob Segar, Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, Kenny Chesney, Eric Church, and Luke Combs) himself.

Opening lyrics, "Don't change the channel don't turn the page. We're living in the sunset of a golden age," demonstrate the talent of writers Matt James and Matt Curtis, while producer Philip Mosley layers in sounds reminiscent of rock influences, along with BLACKTOP MOJO's special flare.

With inspirations ranging all the way from Alice In Chains, Soundgarden, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Bill Withers, Stone Temple Pilots, to Bob Seger and Etta James, BLACKTOP MOJO's music has elements of heavy rock, grunge, soul, blues, and a little splash of southern twang.

Make sure to catch BLACKTOP MOJO on tour from April to August, performing shows across the U.S. such as Richmond, Colorado Springs, and Pensacola.
