How does it tie in with the themes around the song?
Yes, calling on our soldiers to join the cause and fight for survival
Was it fun to shoot or did it prove to be quite a challenge?
Very fun, with access to a lot of hi-tech kit, an array of 4K HD cameras, HUGE screens, crazy lighting rigs! – As with any video though when you have performed the song 100+ times it wears a little thin!!
Do you have any live dates lined up at present?
Friday 2nd August at the Facebar in Reading (Supporting Rammlied – Rammstein tribute), Friday 1st November at the Crown in Littlehampton (Headline)
What are your favourite songs to perform live?

Lamb of God
Any comical stories from your time as a band you can share with us?
A Seagull stealing, and swallowing whole our bass players battered sausage outside of Sticky Mikes in Brighton, and our Guitarist (Dave) having to run out of the car at traffic lights in a one way system approaching Reading as he needed to pee, for us only to realise afterwards he had left his phone in the Car and was subsequently lost in the middle of the City with no way for us to contact him!
What’s the plan for the rest of 2019?
Promoting our video release and continuing the writing process for our album which we hope to get into the studio to record later this year – with a few live shows thrown in to keep us on our toes of course!
