Blowsight have released the music video for their latest single, ‘This Pain’ directed by Tim Aßmann @ Visionary Moments in Burscheild, Germany. The song for the video is 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).
The video may be watched at the Eclipse Records YouTube Page.
“The story that this song itself tells, is about getting rid of those demons, or obstacles in life”, states singer & guitarist Nick Red. “We all have them, but they are shaped in different ways for different individuals. “
In this video, we find ourselves lost in the middle of a corn field, witnessing the apparent “stalking” of a young girl by an individual (performed by singer Nick Red). As he chases her through the corn stalks, we cut back & forth between scenes of the band performing in an abandoned farm house nearby. The “stalker” diverts his attention to the residents of the abandoned house (performed by Blowsight band members Seb, Mao, and Fabs), where he attacks them. After leaving a macabre scene in the abandoned house, he transforms into a young boy. The little girl immediately recognizes him, as they hold hands and walk off into the distance.
Singer Nick Red continues, “The children in the video (to me) represent the innocent. You know, the part of your life when you’re still young, completely free from prejudice, or hatred towards another person, race, sexuality, species, or anything really. You’re like a blank piece of paper and what happens throughout the rest of your life colors the upcoming story. That, ironically is where most of humanity gets lost… The corn fields represent being lost, in a struggling panic to grasp whatever is left of the child you once were. Luckily, the demons (represented by my band members in the abandoned house) get killed, eventually making myself the “fairly” stainless paper again. ”
Eclipse Records will be releasing Life & Death in North America on April 9, 2013.
