Wrapping up what has been an absolutely huge year for the band, Wolf & Chain are putting a taste of their true selves out into the world with the music video for Still Alive (out December 2) directed by Simon Kither with additional footage from Michael Carver and Jack Cumes.
For those who have only just risen from their graves, Wolf & Chain released their second EP ‘Amor Mortal’ on October 29. The storybook collection of tracks featured the two explosive singles Taste of Blood and An Unfortunate Tale of Two Lovers A Insatiable Taste for Poison, both of which were paired with fantastical goth-driven music videos with an ongoing narrative.
Wolf & Chain are now putting 2021 in a body bag and seeing it out with a third and final music video for this dramatic ‘Amor Mortal’ tale that shows a more personable and real side to each of the members. Frontman Jack Cumes explains: “The video for ‘Still Alive’ is really special to us because it’s the first step into reality for the band so far. Our previous videos have been very fantastical and concept-driven, so it was a real departure for us to put the real life of the band out there. It’s also a soft part three to our previous videos; as the band dies at the end of the tale, we are brought into a purgatory-like space, doomed to forever perform ‘Still Alive’ while our lives flash before our eyes. The song is a very personal one and reflects on the experiences that we went through during the making of the record, so it felt appropriate to wear it on our sleeves and bring the fantasy world of Wolf & Chain into real life. Often our stories are metaphors for things that are very real, so it felt right to showcase the fantasy and reality side by side as the finale for this era of the band.”
Moving forward, 2022 looks to be another huge year for Wolf & Chain as it has just been announced that they have joined the Uncaged Festival in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney alongside the likes of Killing Heidi, 28 Days, Terra, The Getaway Plan and so many more.
