Monday WHY released the official video for their song “Weep”.
Directed by Caitlin Quigley, (who shot her brother Sean Quigley’s “Little Drummer Boy” viral video).
Video was shot over a month in Winnipeg secret location.
“It was hard to do as the playback we were playing and singing to was 50% faster than normal, to get that slow motion look. But our drummer Dave Bergmuller had it worst, playing that fast every shoot day which would be 6 hours straight.” recalled Brian Cook singer.
WHY shot for 2 days straight in Winnipeg to finish up video for their single “Weep”.
Post production should take another week and the video will debut.

WHY wrote the song “Prisoner of Hope” on Dec 10th, 2009, not knowing that weeks later Haiti would be hit by a deadly earthquake. The song’s lyrics seemed strangely appropriate.
The single is available for download at cdbaby.com/whytheband3 and 100% of the download profits are being donated to UNICEF for their ongoing work in Haiti. When you download this song, you are investing in Haiti’s future.
WHY has also filmed a video for “Prisoner of Hope”, which can be viewed below.
