Touch The Sky was on of those crazy ones - with 1 hour left of the Mt. Arbel park open we ran up the hill set up and went for it! Band sharing mixes - wind blowing - Kobes sitting on the cliff! We got it in the can. A few days later with most of the Band gone home - we went to Masada and realised that the lowest point on Earth, -424m was in the area around the dead sea. Joel mused that the paradox was too great to let slip - so we took what we had, a guitar, and ipad and 2 mics into a field recorder and filmed the first verse from this - the lowest point on earth. We hope you enjoy the visuals and the dichotomy of them that we hope are in line with the lyrics and their inspiration -- Matthew 5.
