Windhand unveil new video “First To Die” | Touring Europe next month

, ,

Windhand unveil their new hypnotic video, “First To Die” directed by Philippe Grenade. He explains:

“The inspiration for the video started with the lyrics, First you die, to be bornI immediately saw the image of a woman suffocated by the crushing anxiety of a metropolis; drowning in the delirium and being forced through some sort of psychedelic death trip and coming out the other side with a new point of view. A psychic death and rebirth. The video expresses anxiety and transformation while honoring the beauty of Windhand‘s music.”

Windhand‘s highly acclaimed album, Eternal Return, was released late last year on Relapse. The album is a complete life-to-death journey. As unplanned things go, it’s an observation of as well as a reflection on life’s ups and downs, joys and sorrows, beginnings and ends. In recent years, WINDHAND welcomed new life, survived line up changes, and mourned unexpected death. The songs and song ordering are the direct result of those experiences.
