We all put our heads together over some beers and discussed how we could make a video with the limited budget a young band such as ourselves would have and what kind of vibe/style we would like to go down. We instantly landed on the idea of a black and white performance based shoot which ended up inspiring all the visuals for the whole release».

Of which we owe a huge thank you to The Barbell Division».
