It’s January, and the music industry is getting back in the swing of things. That means lots of new music, and specifically new music videos. Here’s a handful of stuff that’s recently come out.
First and foremost, Byzantine, the pride of West Virginia, are finally getting around to releasing their long-awaited reunion album. The self-titled album will be released on February 26. The video and song, “Soul Eraser,” is about drug addiction, and the video, directed by Matt Maloney, is well shot. It debuted on Friday via No Clean Singing, but you can watch it below.
On a completely different note, late last year, we wrote about Ice Nine Kills, a band that turned to Kickstarter to raise funds to record and EP and pay for legal funds accrued when getting out of their old label deal. The band had hoped to raise $10,000, but they more than doubled that, raking in $21,258. That goes to show that if you have a dedicated fan base, Kickstarter works. Among some of the prized claimed were having the band name a song after them on their forthcoming EP and playing a house party. While this isn’t a video proper, here’s a song called “What I Never Learned in Study Hall.”
And finally, metalcore band Motionless In White have released a lyric video for “Black Damask.” It’s a little odd to see a lyric video for a song that uses live footage, especially since it’s the studio version of the song. And the applause grafted on to the end of the song makes it even more incongruous. Regardless, this was shot on the most recent tour for their current album, Infamous.
