Witherfall is back with a pretty creepy new song and video titled "As I Lay Awake", the latter of which was directed by Zev Deans (Ghost, Chelsea Wolfe, St. Vincent).
"'As I Lie Awake' is the catchiest Witherfall song to date," said the band. "It was created with much arguing and loud, drunken chicanery. Early on, the band and producer Jon Schaffer agreed that this should be the lead single. Zev Deans, who had directed Ghost's 'Dance Macabre,' was enlisted for the job and the video for 'As I Lie Awake' features a great Lost Boys-styled treatment. Thanks again to Duff's in Brooklyn. We didn't mean to spill blood and wine on your carpet…"
"When Joseph sent me the song, it immediately transported me to an era when both heavy metal and horror movies were all about sex, blood, and ultimately, a good time," added Deans. "Movies like The Lost Boys were in the movie theaters and long-format music videos like 'Thriller' were on MTV."
Witherfall will release Curse of Autumn on March 5. Curse of Autumn was produced by Jon Schaffer (Iced Earth, Demons & Wizards) for Ravencraft Productions, vocalist Joseph Michael, and guitarist Jake Dreyer. Pre-orders will be available soon.
