VOIVOD are hard at work producing the first music video for their new self-titled album, due on March 4 through Chophouse Records in partnership with Surfdog Records.Filming for the video for the album's first single, "We Carry On", was shot on location in San Francisco January 24-25 by directors Keith McCabe and Jeff Ertl. "It has been a true honor to work with such an influential band as VOIVOD," said Ertl. "We will rip your head clean off with this video!" Befitting the release of the band's 13th album, "We Carry On" is the 13th track on the new album. The video captures raw metal performance footage of the newly transfused line-up of founding members Denis Belanger, Michel Langevin, and Denis D'Amour, and new bassist Jason Newsted. "I dig the way the set was based on my drawings," said drummer Langevin. "It made me feel like I was in one of those spooky nightmares I have almost every night." "The shoot was dark, creepy, and frenetic," the former METALLICA bassist Newsted said. "The band is completely energized! Jeff and Keith have proven themselves as Technical Directors for some killer films ("Star Wars: Phantom Menace" and "Attack of the Clones", "Minority Report", and "Harry Potter 2"). This is their first chance to create a kick ass music video. They've captured VOIVOD live and on top of our game, so they have a lot of ammo to work with! I can't wait to see what the two of them and their crew come up with."
