“With the ‘Ahead Of Myself’ video, we wanted to take something that everyone takes for granted in music videos and turn that on its head,” says X Ambassadors lead singer Sam Harris. “Instead of lip-synching along to the words, the vocals would be recorded live, in the moment. We hoped to create something vulnerable and imperfect with this video, because that’s what the song is all about – embracing your fears and still diving in head-first.”

“Ahead Of Myself”, X Ambassadors first single to be announced off the band’s forthcoming sophomore album, is currently climbing up the Alternative Radio chart as the band gets ready for their inaugural Cayuga Sound Festival which will take place in their home town of Ithaca, NY on September 23. The festival will feature performances by X Ambassadors, The Roots,  K.Flay, The Knocks, Margaret Glaspy, Jukebox the Ghost, Tei Shi and more. A portion of the proceeds will benefit local non-profits including Friends of Stewart Park, The Ithaca Youth Bureau, GIAC, Planned Parenthood Ithaca, Community School of Music & Arts and others.
