Featuring stunning 3D animation from the London-based Smoke And Guns Productions, the video tells a twisted tale of epidemic infection while the band rocks out in a fire & stripper-filled morgue.
â€œWeâ€™ve done performance videos, weâ€™ve tried our hand at acting, and our last video did not even have us in it, so we wanted to try something different this time,â€ states THE DEFILEDâ€™s frontman Stitch D. â€œWith animation, anything is possible. If we want a helicopter, no problem. If we want a massive machine gun mounted on a jeep, ditto. It might be nice to have real strippers and pyro but for now, this does the job nicely.â€
â€œFuck yeah!â€ echoes The AvD. â€œSuicide, murder, disease, fire, helicopters, machine guns, strippers and legos â€“ this has got it all.â€
The video is also the last to feature guitarist Aaron Curse, who, as the clip shows, is sadly no longer of this world. â€œWe are sad to see him go, but you canâ€™t fuck with fate,â€ says The Avd. â€œHe is probably down there in hell right now, creeping out Satan and his minions. He will be missed.â€
Daggers was recorded at Audio Hammer Studios in Florida with producer/engineer Jason Suecof (Death Angel, Job For A Cowboy, Atheist, Charred Walls Of The Damned) and can be ordered from the Nuclear Blast USA Webshop.
