"Haunting Me", the new video from PEGAZUS, can be viewed below. The clip was filmed on location in Melbourne, Australia and directed by Aaron McLoughlin and Judd Hyland.
Commented PEGAZUS founding member and guitarist Johnny Stoj: "The 'Haunting Me' video shoot was personally my best experience ever with making a music video.
"It was so awesome working with film director Aaron McLoughlin and such a professional crew."
Vocalist Justin Fleming on his return to PEGAZUS: "When I got the call from the band, I was, of course, shocked about Rob's departure, but felt honored to be asked to come back into the band. Since then it's been a blast. We have played a lot of great shows, including the SKID ROW tour, and then the recording of 'In Metal We Trust'.
"I think the album will shock a lot of people with the strength and power of the songs. We put all our heart into this album, there are no filler songs and from start to finish 'In Metal We Trust' kicks serious ass!
"The upcoming tour is going to be awesome; we really can't wait to hit the road to meet and bring the PEGAZUS live show to our fans all around the world. It's been far too long since the band has been over to Europe and I'm pumped to get on stage and put on a show the PEGAZUS warriors will never forget."
