Progressive rock band Polyphia released Remember That You Will Die, their fourth studio album, last year via Rise Records. This year, the group hit the road for an extensive tour that included a recent date at The Fillmore Silver Spring.

At The Fillmore Silver Spring on Oct. 28, Polyphia presented a 19-song setlist that drew from across their career. They chose eight selections from Remember That You Will Die, including recent single “Reverie,” which they performed near the start of the show.
The captivating music video for “Reverie” shares a glimpse of the band’s adventures on tour — day and night! It follows the four-piece through their days filled with gliding on water, extravagant Gucci drip hauls, and pushups on a yacht. The lively sunny days are contrasted with cuts of the band putting on electrifying performances at their sold-out shows — complete with stage dives, crowd surfing, and countless mosh pits.
Through all the everchanging escapades, one theme remains constant: Polyphia’s sharing the time of their lives with each other. And now, with their fans. Guitarist Tim Henson summed up the “Reverie” video perfectly, “The power of friendship compels us.”
Watch the official music video for “Reverie” by Polyphia on YouTube:
“Reverie” is featured on Polyphia’s latest record, Remember That You Will Die, along with “ABC (feat. Sophia Black)” and “Playing God,” with the latter track being hailed as Loudwire’s 2022 Song of the Year. The LP also received praise from Guitar World who praised, “Remember That You Will Die is a true original of our period and an across-the-board motherfucker.” Perhaps KERRANG! put it best when they claimed, “the Texan instrumentalists are taking heavy music to new horizons and inspiring a new legion of fans along the way.”
