Candlelight Records has announced the online premiere of "Lies That Bind", the first video from DAYLIGHT DIES. Beginning 9:00 a.m. EST tomorrow (August 9) fans can view the video at both label and band MySpace pages (video will be available for streaming and additionally available for downloading by right-clicking and saving the file to your desktop). The video will also be available via YouTube.com and the band's official web site located at www.daylightdies.com.
Filmed outside the band's home base of Raleigh, North Carolina, the Ramon Boutviseth-directed clip features the full band with local actors in a dark and compelling visual storyline. "It was a scorching hot and humid summer day," recalls drummer Jesse Haff. "We filmed inside a filthy, decaying building complex and later moved on to a wrickety wooden salt-mine platform. And let us not forget to mention entire walls on fire! Ramon understood the importance of including a narrative to convey the song's lyrical and musical content. It's incredible what he's brought to life."
Released earlier this year, "Dismantling Devotion" was mixed by Jens Bogren at Fascination Street Studios (OPETH, SOILWORK) and mastered by Thomas Eberger at The Cutting Room (OPETH, THE HIVES).
DAYLIGHT DIES recently performed to capacity audiences alongside labelmates EMPEROR at New York's B.B. King Blues Club. The band are currently preparing for their first tour in years supporting MOONSPELL and longtime friends KATATONIA. The tour kicks off in Poughkeepsie, New York on October 20 and will conclude on November 19 in Hartford, Connecticut.
