CONFESSOR's video for the song "Wig Stand", off their brand new album, "Unraveled", has been posted online at this location (Quicktime required). The clip was directed by Steve "Paynie" Payne, who has also directed videos for SEPULTURA, KREATOR, NAPALM DEATH, LOVE/HATE and ZZ TOP, among others. Now Steve has teamed up with Scott Jeffreys, the singer of CONFESSOR who produced the video, to tackle a challenging video that conveys heavy emotional content which hits close to home for the band.
"The video really speaks for itself," stated Jeffreys. "It unfortunately tells the story of a dear friend of mine who passed away recently."
"Wig Stand" is said to be "about a person who is on drugs or really down and depressed and there is nothing left of the person but skin and bones. They have withered away and are but an empty shell. Just an empty, skinny body, a stand — good for nothing, but holding up a head of hair atop their skull. Hence the title, 'Wig Stand'."
CONFESSOR's new album, "Unraveled", was produced by Dick Hodgin (ex-CORROSION OF CONFORMITY producer) and is "a wonderful representation of the classic CONFESSOR twisted guitar riffing and complex drumming, meshed with some more straightforward parts and a toned down and very melodic vocal approach," according to Jeffreys. "We feel that the new album will certainly appeal to the old-school CONFESSOR fans and also will attract a brand new fan base who might not have heard us when we were together before."
CONFESSOR split up in the early '90s after releasing one full-length album (1991's "Condemned") and EP (1992's "Confessor"), with the with the rhythm section going on to form FLY MACHINE. CONFESSOR reformed in 2002 following the death of guitarist Ivan Colon, who passed away due to cardiac complications.
