Metal-Trails.com conducted an interview with the Phoenix, Arizona-based post-hardcore/metalcore act BLESSTHEFALL on October 22 in Hamburg, Germany during the "Never Say Die Tour". You can now watch the chat below.
BLESSTHEFALL's music video for the single "40 Days" offers the band's take on a zombie film, featuring lead singer Beau Bokan returning from his grave.
"After waiting around for several months for the new season of 'The Walking Dead' to start back up, we decided to take matters into our own hands and make our very own zombie flick, with a BLESSTHEFALL twist," explained Bokan.
"As many of our fans know, we don't take ourselves too seriously, so we, of course, added a proper dose of BLESSTHEFALL comedic value.
"The video was a blast to film and we even added a very special female guest zombie at the end."
BLESSTHEFALL recently announced a North American headline tour, including support from A SKYLIT DRIVE, AT THE SKYLINES and SKIP THE FOREPLAY.
With the combination of finely honed musicianship and an electrifying live show, BLESSTHEFALL — Bokan, Eric Lambert (guitar), Jared Warth (bass/vocals), Matt Traynor (drums), Elliott Gruenberg (guitar) — has been rapidly gaining fans across the globe.
Regarded as one of the most respected acts in the genre, BLESSTHEFALL's third album, "Awakening", landed at position No. 32 on The Billboard 200 chart with first-week sales of 11,000 copies in the United States. The CD was once again produced by Michael "Elvis" Baskette (ESCAPE THE FATE, INCUBUS, STONE TEMPLE PILOTS) and it "builds from a foundation of post-hardcore, adding in elements of thrash metal and intricate riffs," according to a press release.
