Omnium Gatherum have premiered a DIY home video for the song “Be the Sky.” The track is taken from the group’s latest effort, 2018’s The Burning Cold. Unlike most music videos, this clip was filmed via cell phone over the course of the last year and a half during The Burning Cold touring cycle. During this time of isolation, when watching the video, you will feel the urge to travel or go to a show. It’s definitely a nostalgic clip.
The group shared the following explanation along with discussing tomorrow’s live stream event with Insomnium:
“BE THE SKY” OFFICIAL PHONEVIDEO!
“Hell’o folks and checking in from the OG hq!
This “Be The Sky” DIY home video was filmed and edited by my phone during past 1,5 years on “The Burning Cold” tours all around the world , and it includes the same vast skies spotted everywhere around the planet Earth during the endless travels with the band. Back in the good old times when we were free and able to tour, times before apocalypse. Waiting to do some more, someday!
This week we’re gonna rock thru the livestream and pretend it feels like a real concert in front of a real crazy fans in the front, be sure to check it out and support “the modern times”.
The mid-video also contains the “not-so-serious” bass player application video that Mikko Kivistö send to us, and in fact, got the job! With this excerpt we wanna thank all the guitarists who have already sent your application to us – you are many and have surprised us positively, and we’re starting slowly to watch all of them carefully and plan the next moves with this case too!
We have been overwhelmed by our fans huge and endless support during these hard times – Thank thee all!
Be safe, and let’s stay strong!”
