The video depicts a maritime story of unfolding desire and tragedy. When asked about their single, My Dying Bride’s Aaron Stainthorpe said, “Set upon the rugged coast of Yorkshire, Thornwyck village has spent an eternity being haunted by the chill waters that wash it’s shore – and the hidden folk who dwell in the salty depths.
Woe betide anyone who fares into the briny sea, or even steels to close to it’s edge for they may never set foot back on mother earth.”
The band’s release of A Mortal Binding is much anticipated after the release of The Ghost of Orion which came out in 2020. This album stages the band’s next exultant phase of elegiac misery which is a general theme in their songs.
