A new Syslosis album is right around the corner and we're so excited to hear our first taste today, and not only that, we have some killer visuals to go with the track as well. Take a listen/viewing below: (Note: you may need to click through to watch the video on Vimeo)
Here's what the band has to say about the video:
The video was animated by Oliver Jones of Better Feeling Films in the UK. It took five hours to film the band and story footage and roughly 60 days to animate. Oliver was the only person working on the project, from shooting the live action footage to animating the entire video. The process he used is called 'rotoscoping', which involves tracing over footage, frame by frame. Frontman Josh commented: "Leech is the second single off the new album. I would say the album is probably our heaviest to date but this song showcases a more melodic and stripped back side to what we do. It's a really dark, sinister doomy sounding song and we thought it would be cool to try something a bit different for the video and have it reflect the vibe of the music. We've always wanted to have an animated music video and it allows for a bit more creativity and makes it stand out."
The band's new album, Dormant Heart is out January 12th. Pre-order on Amazon for as low as $8.99.
