Evile to film new music video for “Memoriam”

Posted by XxCrashQueenxX on Wednesday, April 11, 2012 at 2:23 PM (PST)

The band Evile is planning on filming a new music video for their song “Memoriam”  off of the band’s latest album Five Serpent’s Teeth which was released on September 26th, 2011. The band is said to begin filming on April 29th in north England and will be working with director Ben Thornley who has worked with Thrice and The Blackout in the past.

Lead guitarist Ol Drake had this to say about the video:

The initial idea was to release the ‘Cult’ video, as we did, then immediately get onto recording the video for ‘In Memoriam’; this was easier said than done. It’s been well documented why the song the exists. When it came to getting the ‘right’/'appropriate’ treatment for the video it was a lengthy process. The song is so close to all of us that we wanted to make sure the video complimented the song and its subject matter, and that all four of us were happy with how the song will be portrayed visually. If we’d have settled on the first idea after ‘Cult’, we wouldn’t have been happy, so amidst touring and gigging we’ve been working hard on getting this 100% before we move on to the next video. The song is basically about loss, which we can all relate to, so we wanted to express that in the video, while staying respectful to why the song exists. We can’t wait to get this filmed and out there for all to enjoy!”
