HOUR OF 13: 'Who's To Blame?' Video Released
- Dec. 13, 2012
"Who's To Blame?", the new video from U.S. East Coast doom metallers HOUR OF 13, can be seen below. The clip was filmed in Waterbury, Connecticut with director Eric Schrader.
Commented HOUR OF 13 frontman Phil Swanson: "Making a video for some reason has always been a personal goal — maybe it's my interest in film that brings that on — and thankfully Earache has allowed me to finally fulfil that dream.
"I've known our director, Eric Schrader, for almost fifteen years when I met him working in the local video store. We would talk 'B' movies and underground music until one day he shared one of his own movies, a crudely written script with fake moustaches and plastic guns, yet the editing was unbelievably professional. Eventually, he started making his own 'B' films, one of which my daughter had a small role in. So whenever I thought video, I thought of Eric. I'm happy to have the chance to work with him as he is now becoming a seasoned pro on his way to L.A. and we were lucky enough to catch him before he left.
"For the concept, Eric and I shared some initial ideas until he took hold and pieced it all together, finding the perfect location chock-full of bums, broken bottles and bats. Eric did his magic in the editing room and turned it all into something brilliant. We needed some bodies on bass and drums, so I invited Jason Tarpey and Arthur Rizk to join us, as they were slated at one time to be the U.S. live lineup. It was an amazing night, good times had and Eric's crew was great company.
"For me, making this video was as rewarding as making the record. I hope everyone enjoys watching it as much as we did making it!"
HOUR OF 13's latest album, "333", is available now worldwide.
