Minnesota-based quintet AFTER THE BURIAL and the band's record label, Sumerian Records, have issued a press release regarding the status of the group's promotional video for the track "Pendulum", which is taken from AFTER THE BURIAL's new album, "In Dreams". Even though the clip was filmed last December, its release has been held up "due to legal issues" beyond the band's control.
According to the press release, the general concept of the video was to have AFTER THE BURIAL invade an all-girl Catholic school and give them all the opportunity to have some uninhibited fun. Throughout the band's performance in the school's gym, the director and other various crew members encouraged the girls to let loose and go wild to accompany the chorus of the song where the band yells "we lose control." Well, apparently some girls took everything a little too far by "grinding on each other, in addition to displaying other inappropriate lewd conduct, creating an environment that got the conservative Catholic chaperones on the set into a frenzy." The director's production company was since hit with a cease-and-desist notice essentially delaying the release of this video.
In the meantime, you can check out stills from the shoot at this location.
AFTER THE BURIAL will perform at Bamboozle in New Jersey this Sunday and will head directly from there to meet with the acclaimed director Scott Hansen (ALESANA, ANIMALS AS LEADERS) to film a video for the track "Your Troubles Will Cease and Fortune Will Smile Upon You".
Look for AFTER THE BURIAL on tour throughout May with NORMA JEAN, MOTIONLESS IN WHITE, FOR THE FALLEN DREAMS and STRAY FROM THE PATH.
