SOCIETY To Film 'Lifeless' Video

SOCIETY 1 will shoot a video for the track "Lifeless" next week in downtown Los Angeles. The song comes off the band's new EP, "Screams Of A Sadist", which is being produced by Raymond Herrera (FEAR FACTORY, ARKAEA, 3VOLUTION) and engineered by Jeremy Blair (FEAR FACTORY, DEVILDRIVER, ZAKK WYLDE, GUNS N' ROSES). Joining founding SOCIETY 1 member and vocalist Lord Zane in the video — which will be mostly performance-based and is a stark contrast to previous SOCIETY 1 clips — are guitarist Brian Jackson (SKINLAB), bassist Dirt VonKarloff and drummer Pete Pace (LONDON AFTER MIDNIGHT).

"Considering I've done everything from suspending in our videos to playing Hitler and being crucified like Jesus Christ I wanted to base this video around the current line up to really let people know this is a real band and not a bunch of hired guns. The band you see in the video is the band that played on the EP and is the band you'll see live when we hit the stage," said Zane.

The topic matter of the song is based around the concept of "Small Death", which is a term Tantric practitioners call the male orgasm and Zane's struggle with sex addiction.

"There is a line in the song that says 'Death hides inside sex' and for me that defines the majority of my life," Zane said. "It's about my compulsion to seek out sexual release from faceless strangers regardless of consequence and the dire results that follow. The lyrics really delve into how conflicted yet disgusted I am on a daily basis yet can't seem to escape my actions and how everyone in my path becomes a victim. I feel this behavior leaves me lifeless which is just another way of me saying I feel soulless."
