[HTDA] News. Finally.

Sorry for the radio silence lately… I’ve been busy! There’s a number of things to be revealed over the coming months. Some you may expect, others you may not. Patience, my friends.

Today’s news is about my band How To Destroy Angels. I’m happy to announce we’ve formally partnered with Columbia Records for our next series of releases. The first of these will be available in November and it’s called An Omen EP. As you may have guessed, it’s an EP. It contains six songs, some of which are from our full-length LP which is coming early next year.
We are making some videos, we are going to be performing live, and that’s all the details I have for now on those matters.

Regarding our decision to sign with Columbia, we’ve really spent a long time thinking about things and it makes sense for a lot of reasons, including a chance to work with our old friend Mark Williams. There’s a much more granular and rambling answer I could give (and likely will in an interview someplace) but it really comes down to us experimenting and trying new things to see what best serves our needs. Complete independent releasing has its great points but also comes with shortcomings.

We are all very excited about you checking out the new stuff. Wish I could tell you more, but you know how this works… it would take all the fun out of it!

Stay tuned!

[HTDA] The Space in Between video shoot

A prop hotel room was built specifically for the shoot, so it could be burned down.

Pouring fake blood on Trent.

A small fire was used for foreground and reflective purposes on the close-ups of Trent.

The footage of Mariqueen and Trent was digitally composited with footage of these mannequin stand-ins burning.

Lighting the bed on fire.

Extinguishing the fire to do another take.

Mannequin Trent burning.

The whole room was eventually burned down. A composite of Mariqueen singing and additional digital fire effects were added for the final shot. To add gruesome detail to the shots of Mariqueen burning, effects artists composited in images of charred flesh, diseased skin, and even chicken meat.
