Blowsight have released a brand new music video for their second single, ‘Hit On The Radio’ taken from the band’s up-coming full length album entitled Life & Death, which will be released in North America on April 9, 2013 by Eclipse Records (Mushroomhead, Bobaflex, Scum of the Earth).
Blowsight chose once again Tim Aßmann @ Visionary Moments to direct “Hit on The Radio”, who previously directed “This Pain”, the first single off “Life & Death”. “The vibe was amazing” said singer Nick Red. “The band was in a great mood, not only because of the feeling of being on tour, but also because we were so damn united as a group.”
“Hit On The Radio is one of those songs that I always wanted in the Blowsight repertoire – a song that can be played on a party, a song that just makes you wanna dance, a song that honors my love for people who can be themselves and stand in the middle of the dancefloor like they “just don care” explains singer Nick Red. “I remember seeing this girl at a pub once, she looked so damn boring… neutral… she passed us and had a few pints with her friends. After a while, the speakers screamed out “Finger Lickin’ Good” by the mighty Beastie Boys, and she started dancing (in her chair). She was smiling, miming, and instantly turned my impression of her totally upside down. She became so-damn-sensual. She let go and became herself, 100 percent, showing her true personality… THAT’s the kind of people I want to see populate the world.”
The video was filmed at Khalil Boxing and PixelGarage in Germany while the band was on tour with Oomph! “It was colder than Siberia in that ring, but when Fabz(drums) and Mao (bass) started sparring, it warmed up good enough. My favorite part of the shoot however was on day two, at the PixelGarage where we smashed the radios. Our label manager and director brought like a hundred radios to the set, handed us baseball bats and told us to just go crazy… best time of the day, I tell you. I don’t have the biggest muscles (I admit that), but damn it felt good seeing those plastic parts explode into a billion pieces!”
Eclipse Records will be releasing Life & Death in North America on April 9, 2013.
