NEWS: Notts metallers release video for Winters track from next ep

TECH. melodic metallers – The Five Hundred – have released a new video from their forthcoming ep (watch below and enjoy!)

The band say this about the video for the track 'Winters' and it may resonate with a lot of bands here and further afield.

"The track is about the miserable and negative people that try to bring you down to their level.
The lyrics go:
‘The winters of your grief
Shut off that sound it’s deafening
Ripping away belief
A worry that weighs a ton…'

“Every musician or band starting out has had to deal, at some point, with the naysayers, the killjoys and the downers - the people who are so miserable in their own existence that they spend their energy and time trying to bring others down. ‘Get a real job. Get a career. Get a mortgage, a pension plan, financial security. Quit this rock n roll pipe dream. So, this song goes out to them. All of that noise and negativity just spurs us on, and we wouldn't be where we are now if it wasn't for their inspiration.”

The video was recorded by Shaun Hodson of Loki Films, who's recently done some wicked videos for bands such as Black Tongue, Heart In Hand, and TRC. Filmed in some undisclosed location in the woods of Nottingham

“It was cold, rainy and miserable, which is exactly what we needed it to be for this video. "

Their first EP was released in November 2015 with their debut single premiering on Kerrang! Radio, The Radio 1 Rock Show, and playing on Kerrang TV and Scuzz.

They are due to release a second EP in 2016, with a full album to follow in early 2017 (all released produced by Justin Hill – SiKth, Heart Of A Coward, Betraying The Martyrs, etc.)
