Hot off the respective releases by Singapore hardcore band State of Pain and Hong Kong hardcore band Dagger, both bands have hinted that music videos are on the horizon. State of Pain have a video in the works for the track Self Proclaimed God and Dagger have a video in the works for the track All Hope Is Gone. Dagger have stated that the video will not be an easy one to watch. The track itself discusses the issue of Hong Kong students taking their own lives due to the pressures of Hong Kong’s education system. The video is being shot by Mike Sakas, also out of Hong Kong, and features Shaun Apellido drummer of Hong Kong metalcore bands Parallel Horizons and Aether in his debut acting role.
Both bands have releases out on Singapore’s Dangerous Goods. If you haven’t heard the records yet, and haven’t ordered the record (the fuck’s wrong with you?? hahaha)…get at ’em here:
