“Sweet Salvation” is the first single off The Stepkids forthcoming album Troubadour (coming 2013), and the title of their new 4-track 12-inch, Sweet Salvation EP.
The Video was directed by Jesse Mann who co developed their light show and has been on numerous tours with the band. Jesse enlisted Big Nazo’s puppets along with friends from his early work in the puppet/prop world for Broadway, TV and Film. Think H.R Pufnstuf with three part harmonies.
