Norwegian rock band Kvelertak just released a new music video for their album “1985.” The Single is from their forthcoming album: Nattesferd (‘Night Traveler’) due to be released on May 13th from Roadrunner.
“1985” is unique because its sound is a little different from their usual “black metal” flavor and similar to that of classic rock from its early days reported Stereogum.
The video adds a lot to the track, as it portrays four men who decide to do some illegal acts as team and go a little wild. Activities they take part in include: breaking into swimming pools, smashing abandoned buildings and kidnapping strangers.
Director Fredrick S. Hana talked about his inspiration behind the action in the clip: “In my third collaboration with Kvelertak, I wanted to make a music video where the story and characters took the center stage. The video revolves around a micro-community, a four man cult, where a deep and twisted friendship lies beneath it all. They don’t see themselves as a part of the normal society and decide to honor their differences in a unique fellowship. We follow the character’s growing addiction to push limits, and in the end, their incompetence to see any real consequences with their actions. I wanted to get across the fantastic feeling of being a part of something, but also the dangers of not daring to take a stand, to just swim along with the current.”
The band will begin touring in celebration of their new album this Spring, beginning on April 12th in Portland, ME.
