Luna, atmosfera autunnale, nebbia tra i boschi, vampiri e un malvagio narratore…se siete fan del cinema horror anni 80 resterete colpiti dal nuovo video dei WITHERFALL!
La band presenta “As I Lie Awake”
, secondo estratto dal nuovo album “Curse Of Autumn”
Il video è stato diretto da Zev Deans
(Ghost, Behemoth, Chelsea Wolfe, Danzel Curry, St. Vincent).”Curse Of Autumn” sarà pubblicato il 5 marzo 2021
su Century Media Records
, il preorder verrà annunciato nei prossimi giorni.
L’artwork è opera ancora una volta del leggendario Kristian Wåhlin
ed è il quarto nella discografia della band.
L’album è stato prodotto da Jon Schaffer
(Iced Earth, Demons & Wizards) per Ravencraft Productions
, Joseph Michael
(voce e tastiere; anche membro di Sanctuary) e Jake Dreyer
(chitarra; Iced Earth, Demons & Wizards) mentre la fase di registrazione e master è stata curata da Jim Morris
(Savatage, Iced Earth, Kamelot, Death) e Tom Morris
After most WITHERFALL songs were written with just an acoustic guitar, pen and paper and copious amounts of red wine, it was the group effort of the full production team that made a difference. “Jon Schaffer and Jim Morris really brought a lot of energy to these sessions”, Michael comments.
WITHERFALL comments: “’As I Lie Awake’ is the catchiest WITHERFALL song to date. It was created with much arguing and loud drunken chicanery. Early on the band and producer Jon Schaffer agreed that this should be the lead single. Director Zev Deans who had directed Ghost’s ‘Dance Macabre’ was enlisted for the job and the video for ‘As I Lie Awake’ features a great ‘Lost Boys’ styled treatment. Thanks again to Duffs in Brooklyn, we didn’t mean to spill blood and wine on your carpet…”
Director Zev Deans about the video: “When Joseph sent me the song, it immediately transported me to an era when both heavy metal and horror movies were all about sex, blood and ultimately, a good time! Movies like ‘The Lost Boys’ were in the movie theaters and long-format music videos like ‘Thriller’ were on MTV.”
