MyChildren MyBride have released a brand new music video today for “XeN0.” “The music video for XeN0 features me being attacked and drained of blood by a vampire,” says vocalist Matthew Hasting. “We couldn’t write a song about a horror film, and then not use the opportunity to feature buckets of fake blood in the video. This was extremely fun, and at most times hilarious (my girlfriend is the vampire), to film. Big shout out to Nelson Flores and his team for making our vision come to life.”
The new video and single is the third track we’ve heard from the band’s all new LP coming this fall. “THORNS” and “Act 1: Elysium 77” were released previously.
“Lyrically, XeN0 was written about one of my all time favorite horror films ‘Let the Right One In,'” guitarist Robert Bloomfield adds. “There’s something about the heaviness of the song, and then the dramatic shift in the songs verses, that mimic the viciousness and romanticism of vampires. This is one of our favorites off of Vicious World, and really feel like it encompasses so much of what we wanted to portray through the record.”
“To me XeN0 is the highlight track that sums up ‘Vicious World’ as a whole. I wanted the tension to be well known and in your face, pushing and pulling throughout the entire song.”
“XeN0,” “THORNS” and “Act I: Elysium 77” are all available on all streaming platforms and as iTunes instant gratification tracks, meaning, fans who pre order the album get all three tracks instantly.
MyChildren MyBride will release Vicious World on October 13, 2017 via Entertainment One Music / Good Fight Music, their first release in five years. Vicious World is the highly anticipated follow up to their self-titled LP released in 2012.
Vicious World is equally energetic, driving, dramatic, and cinematic. Each song takes listeners on a moving journey from start to finish, with special care and attention to structure and meaning. Songs like “God of Nothing” and “The Endless” from their previous self-titled album were but the tip of the artistic iceberg, setting MyChildren MyBride toward the darker and more ambitious path that culminated with album four.
