They have recently released the video for ‘Tides of Terror‘ from their upcoming album. Directed and edited by guitarist Chase Benyon, it was shot on location in Melville in a friends empty space, with Mike Bell from Capitol Collective as D.O.P.
Speaking of the video they said: “We didn’t have a concept like filth. We wanted to broaden our music videos and not rely on a story in every one of them to present the music. We went for a simple band performance video. No bells no whistles. Just the song and the band rocking out. With the other videos that will be released in the future having a band performance video felt right on the list of band things to do.”
