Ahead of their many many upcoming tour dates with bands like Stone Sour, Trivium, Norma Jean and more, hard rock experimental duo ‘68 have just dropped a brand new music video for their Two Parts Viper track “Without Any Words (Only Crying And Laughter).”
Directed by the band’s own mastermind Josh Scogin, the new video is half creepy surveillance footage half retro-looking VHS film – which, according to Scogin, was thanks in part to re-discovering some old video equipment of his.
“I shot this video after finding my old VHS camcorder that I used to take on tour in my earlier (much earlier) days of touring,” he says. “As I captured all the old footage onto my computer, I found all the glitches and dropped frames to be quite beautiful. So I decided to shoot a video in which these elements could really stand out and be the focus.”
“As I went along,” Scogin added, “I discovered other ways to make different types of glitches that came naturally to the process. For example, shooting with a cheap surveillance camera or filming the screen of a computer that’s playing the footage. So these ingredients clearly set the precedent of just making the video vibe like that of a police case montage, or something similar.”
