After 12 long years, Brooklyn hard rock legends Life Of Agony are finally back with their brand new album ‘A Place Where There’s No More Pain’, which was released April 28th via Napalm Records. So far, 2 songs from the album have been released to the public, the title track ‘A Place Where There’s No More Pain’, as well as the band’s just recently premiered single for ‘World Gone Mad’. Now Life Of Agony, back in their famous and original ‘River Runs Red’– line up fronted by the one & only Mina Caputo, unleash the official, and hell of a scary, video for ‘World Gone Mad’!
“The message behind ‘World Gone Mad’ could not be more relevant to what’s going on all over this planet right now. People are more divided than ever, and if we continue to ignore the fact that this world is busting at its seams and just continue to “stick our heads underground,” like the lyrics suggest, we will see a madness in our lifetime like we’ve never experienced before,” explained bassist Alan Robert just recently. He continues: “With the ‘World Gone Mad’ video, we were really looking to break out of the typical performance video approach to capture a high concept visual. There is clearly a strong homage to horror movies such as Hellraiser and The Ring, and U.K. director Leigh Brooks of Firebelly Films went above and beyond to bring our ideas to life. It’s definitely the darkest and scariest looking video we’ve done to date.”
Sentia are very happy with way the film turned out saying that though it was a collaborative effort the artist took it to a level beyond their expectation. “We developed the general concept with Oscar, and then let him go off and turn those ideas into something interesting,” said vocalist, Amos Phillips. “We knew we wanted something animated and visually powerful, but we were not expecting such an amazing story!” said drummer, Chris Bodin.
The track ‘Hydroflow’ is pulled from Sentia’s 2016 EP ‘Origins’ which saw the band step into a new era.
