Facing The Gallows Release Video For Tides Of Terror

Facing the Gallows – Tides of Terror

Today sees the release Tides of Terror the first single and video from Johannesburg’s Facing The Gallows. Taken from their forthcoming new album Dead Mindset which is due for release on the 20th February 2018.

Directed and edited by guitarist Chase Benyon the video was shot on location in Melville in a friends empty space.

The D.O.P was Mike Bell from Capitol Collective.

“We didn’t have a concept like filth. We wanted to broaden our music videos and not rely on a story in every one of them to present the music.

We went for a simple band performance video. No bells no whistles. Just the song and the band rocking out. With the other videos that will be released in the future having a band performance video felt right on the list of band things to do.” Facing The Gallows said.
