AKERCOCKE Shoots Video For 'Axiom'

On Monday, May 14, sharp-suited metal maestros AKERCOCKE arrived at Wilton's Music Hall in London to begin shooting their video for the brand new track "Axiom", lifted from the new album "Antichrist". The shoot was produced by the highly acclaimed promo clip company HSI (responsible for classic clips by NIRVANA, MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE, COHEED AND CAMBRIA, etc.) and was directed by Erica Herbert, who specializes in a dark, elegant style of imagery that complements the group perfectly. With a mixture of band performance and storyline in the form of two beautiful seductive girls dressing and undressing one another, the viewer will witness a clever twist in the normal performance alongside storyline format.

AKERCOCKE frontman Jason Mendonca had the following to say about the shoot: "The new video for 'Axiom' promises to be a tremendously surreal work indeed. Erica Herbert's dreamlike direction and Schwanmeir-esque approach should make for a unique and beautiful visual outing."

Check out photos from the video shoot at this location.

"Antichrist" will be released in the U.K. on May 28 and in the U.S. on July 17 via Earache Records.
