Video Premiere: DEMON HUNTER's 'The Negative'

DEMON HUNTER has released the official music video for the song "The Negative". The track is taken from the band's new album "War", which was made available alongside a companion LP, "Peace", on March 1.

"The video for 'The Negative' was directed and edited by Oleg Masnyy," explains singer Ryan Clark. "Oleg and I shot a variety of vignettes — including myself singing the song — as well as a number of moving objects to create texture and diversity. We paired our shots with found footage, and edited the entire thing in a highly-crushed monochromatic style, utilizing only stark black, white, and red. Our goal was to create something that felt gritty and punk — like the song itself — influenced by '90s DIY show posters and silkscreen shirt graphics. The images, scenes, and objects themselves tie into the theme of the song, which is — to put it simply — the consistency of humankind's failure."

As previously reported, DEMON HUNTER will perform more than 20 songs each night at a series of special shows this summer.

"An Evening With Demon Hunter" is an epic mixture of fan favorite anthems and deep cuts that have never been performed live. Both electric and acoustic presentations will feature songs that span the band's 10 studio albums, including "War" and "Peace".

"We're building a show that's unlike anything we've done before," Clark explained. "We'll have video installations, created specifically for this tour, during set changes. We are planning the biggest lighting/staging production we've ever done, surpassing even the 'Stronger Than Hell' tour we did back in the day."

As a headlining act, DEMON HUNTER helped introduce audiences to bands like AUGUST BURNS RED. They've done several headlining tours and toured as direct support to IN FLAMES. In recent years, they appeared at Chicago Open Air (with OZZY OSBOURNE, KISS), Heavy Montreal (MARILYN MANSON, GOJIRA), and headlined Uprise Fest and Rock The Desert.

"An Evening With Demon Hunter" will arrive in 10 cities across North America, with VIP ticket packages available through SoundRink. The tour concludes with a more traditional festival-length set at Louder Than Life in Louisville, Kentucky, alongside genre titans GUNS N' ROSES, SLIPKNOT, DISTURBED and BREAKING BENJAMIN.

"No opening bands, just an entire night of DH mania," Clark added. "Whether you've seen DEMON HUNTER in the past or not, you won't want to miss this."
