AKERCOCKE SHOOT VIDEO FOR "AXIOM" WITH HSI LONDON
On Monday May 14th, sharp suited metal maestros Akercocke arrived at Wilton’s Music Hall in London to begin shooting their video for the brand new track "Axiom", lifted from the stunning new album ‘Antichrist’. The shoot was undertaken by highly acclaimed promo clip company HSI (responsible for classic clips by Nirvana, My Chemical Romance, Coheed And Cambria, etc).
The video was directed by Erica Herbert. She specializes in a dark, elegant style of imagery that compliments the band perfectly. With a mixture of band performance and storyline in the form of 2 beautiful seductive girls dressing & undressing one another, the viewer will witness a clever twist in the normal performance alongside storyline format.
Front man, Jason Mendonca had the following to say about the shoot: “The new video for "Axiom" promises to be a tremendously surreal work indeed. Erica Herbert’s dreamlike direction and Schwanmeir-esque approach should make for a unique and beautiful visual outing”
