Today's update sees a welcome return for East Kilbride's alternative gasmask rockers EK Decay. Lining up with David Middleton (vocals), Jamie Stevens (bass), John Hunter (guitar), Jamie Barnes (drums) they're a band who've picked up a rabidly loyal fanbase (The Collective) who are frequently aboard the battlebus following the band the length and breadth of the UK.
Since forming in 2013 they've released a couple of very well received albums, No Hope and The Collective and there's a dvd in the pipeline. Find out more here : http://ekdecay.weebly.com/
Their latest release is a new single. Titled Armageddon, it's going to be available on vinyl and if you pre order it from the above link they'll send you a free cd copy.
As frontman Midi is an approchable kind of guy I asked him for some info on the single and on the newly released accompanying video.....
"We filmed this video at the decaying Buchanan castle, just outside Glasgow, and it was meant to be a big production effort with a local Video company who were desperate to break into the music video scene but after we hired a bus to take our fans there the company let us down at the last minute as the "Weather was too wet to film outdoors" ....... we decided to go ahead and do a DIY film with "The Collective" making them the main part of the story as a way of thanking them for their loyalty over the years of selling out buses wherever we play and getting into the gigs like no other fans we have seen and so this video shows them in all their mad glory................. the music box is meant to signify the beginning and end of the story because who knows how long the fun will last. Armageddon is a serious song but hopefully the video can put a smile on a few peoples faces ........ god knows the world needs that right now.
With the rise extremism and terrorism around the globe and with politics taking an alarming swing to the right, the world has never felt so unsafe. The nuclear arms race in unstable countries like Iran & North Korea has everyone on the edge of their seats. The expansionism of Russia and the now a total screwball like Trump running the most powerful country in the world has us all reaching for the gas mask and heading to the bunkers ......... Armageddon is coming and don't say we didn't warn you!"
This Is Armageddon......
* for some reason, it seems that when you click on the video it won't play but it's easy enough to watch it, just click where it says watch this ideo on youtube and it'll take you straight to it *
