British metallers The Raven Age have released a music video for their new single “Betrayal Of The Mind”. Guitarist George Harris reveals:
“With the ‘Betrayal’ video, the idea coincides with the narrative. The actress represents someone who is stuck inside her own mind, it’s eating her up as she loses the ability to simply get through the day without her dark thoughts taking over. The performance concept, however, was pretty straightforward. We wanted a big space with lots of fire! The plan was to use it in certain sections but when we saw how cool it looked we were like ‘Nah, just go nuts!!’. I’m pretty sure Jai had no hair left at the end of the shoot but it was worth it!”
Vocalist Matt James adds:
“The ‘Betrayal’ video not only had to look visually appealing but had to be true to the message of the song. It’s hard sometimes to get the balance of simplicity but also portraying a narrative. I think the directors Richard and Adam did a great job with that. It’s a step up in production from the last video, and hope people will relate to the message. The track itself is a big heavy/groove orientated track which we love playing live as it gets the crowd head banging. It’s been going down a blast on the amazing shows we’re playing with Tremonti and we can’t wait to be playing it, along with loads of other new material next year when we get the chance to tour with Iron Maiden. That’s a dream come true!”
The track is the band’s second with James as vocalist, following this past spring’s “Surrogate”. It is also the second sample of their forthcoming sophomore record; details are pending. The singles are available for digital download on iTunes and Amazon.
The band were recently announced as support on Iron Maiden’s 2019 North American tour, get the dates here.
