Bury Tomorrow Shoot Unsettling Video For More Than Mortal
Bury Tomorrow have released a video for the track More Than Mortal, taken from their latest album, Black Flame.
The video features an appearance by London-based drag artist Charity Kase and an unsettling storyline featuring blood drinking, religion and a gang called Black Flame. We’ll leave bassist Davyd Winter-Bates to explain the rest after the jump.
“The idea of the video came from taking the theme of the song to its ultimate progression,” he says. “The exploitation of the masses from celebrity and corporation is portrayed as its own pseudo-future religion and the Black Flame are here to bring it down. We wanted it to feel disorienting and nightmarish, physically showing the ‘lifting of the veil’ on celebrity culture exposing the exploitation and removing its power on those it preys on.
“It was insanely fun working closely with the creative team on this one to do something different for us and the performances from Charity Kase and the rest of the actors are next level,” he adds. “The song has already become a fan favourite from Black Flame so we’re very excited to bring that to life visually as well.”
