DARKEST HOUR have released a new music video!
The new music video, for the track Enter Oblivion, is taken from the band’s latest studio album Godless Prophets & The Migrant Flora which was released last year. The new video was directed by vocalist John Henry, with director of photography Ben Hoffman and produced and edited by Chad Fjerstad and arrives before the band’s upcoming European tour with HAVOK. On filming the video John Henry says, “I wanted to find a location that I felt would represent the nomadic theme of the song. When I came across Rainbow Basin outside of Barstow I immediately knew it was the right spot. There’s a real beauty about the bleakness and harshness of the desert which stands out as the true star of the video.” Guitarist Mike Schleibaum adds, “we chose the song Enter Oblivion because it shows a different side of the album then we first presented. This song sits in the middle of the album and although it doesn’t crush with the same speed as the others it presents a depth that is all its own. The style of this song really allows for the band to breath sonically and the production of Kurt Ballou to really stand out on this track, especially in those drums! This is song for those who live outside of the borders of man and the laws of nature. For those who have found themselves in the act of constantly searching.”
