"Night Rider", the new video from Brisbane, Australia's powercore band A BREACH OF SILENCE, can be seen below. The ambitious clip puts the viewer "in the boots" of the green-faced undead lead character, and into the action of Western-style shootouts, fist fights, and a dramatic showdown. Join our heroic vigilante, Night Rider, as he shows a group of outlaws terrorizing a peaceful town who's boss.
"Night Rider" pays homage to two of the band's favorite pastimes — 1960s classic Westerns and first-person shooter videogames. It was directed by Steven Caldwell of Caldwell Entertainment, features gun slinging bandits, a cast of more than sixty actors, and an undead heroic vigilante known as "Night Rider".
"For the 'Night Rider' video, we wanted to do a really cool story line about a character we created called Night Rider," states guitarist Mat Cosgrove. "He's an undead cowboy whose mission is to take anyone bad or evil back to the deep dark fiery pit where he came from. We as a band use this character as a medium to tell our stories, experiences, and learning's of life. The true meaning of the song is that, you can make mistakes, and fail at things, but it's the mistakes and failings that make you who you are. The Night Rider is a vigilante of sorts, he is initially arrested by the law, but when some local bad guys shoot up the town and gun down the sheriff and his deputies, he's released from prison to carry out justice and uphold the law."
A BREACH OF SILENCE released its debut full-length album, "Dead Or Alive", on October 1, 2013 through Eclipse Records. The effort was produced by Fredrik Nordström and Henrik Udd (BRING ME THE HORIZON, OPETH, IN FLAMES, ARCH ENEMY) and recorded at HK Studios in Brisbane, Australia.
