A Breach Of Silence has released a making-of video clip for the soon to be released "Night Rider" music video. Check it out below.
The music video pays homage to the 1966 classic western "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly," and the popular western-themed videogame "Red Dead Redemption" – two of the band’s favorite pastimes. It was directed by Steven Caldwell of Caldwell Entertainment, features gun slinging bandits, a cast of more than sixty actors, and an undead outlaw known as The Night Rider.
“For the Night Rider video, we wanted to do a really cool story line about a character we created called The 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 take care of them and uphold the law.”
“Every so often as a filmmaker you get an opportunity to work with an amazing team and create something really special” says director Steven Caldwell. “… and I knew this was one of those rare opportunities straight away. The band wanted something very ambitious; a western movie/videogame style with a large number of extras (all in costume), along with an old-looking town and great effects. What I did was guide the ship and give the video that epic feel. With about 60 people all in period costume, real guns (many of them), an incredible 1st Assistant Director in Darwin Brooks (The Great Gatsby, Australia, Prince of Persia: Sands of Time), and beautiful looking shots thanks to Dave Wayland (Director of Photography), I think we achieved that!” More...
A Breach of Silence and Eclipse Records have released a brand new lyric video for the song "Circles." The video was directed by Caldwell Entertainment and can be viewed below.
"When writing the chorus for Circles, I wanted it to be a clear message that you have control over your own life, and have the power over the choices you make," states vocalist/bassist Blair Layt. "The song itself is toned down, compared to most of the others songs on the album, but I think this helps to separate it and stand out - a lot like the message that it's trying to get across."
A Breach of Silence just wrapped up shooting another music video for the song "Night Rider" (to be released in September), and previously released a clip for "There Will Be Blood," which can be found right here.
The band is gearing up for more touring in October, as direct support for Swedish metalcore masters Adept. All dates are listed below.

Eclipse Records and A Breach of Silence have unleashed a music video for the song “There Will Be Blood.” The video was directed by Caleb Graham, produced by David Wayland (Parkway Drive), and filmed near Byron Bay & Lennox Heads in NWS, Australia.
The video begins as a bank robbery in progress by the band wearing masks portraying U.S. presidents, Saddam Hussein, and Pope Benedict. A high-speed chase ensues on a deserted road throughout Byron Bay, where the thieves start disagreeing over how the loot should be divided amongst them. Chaos ensues on the Cliffs of Lennox Heads, as the band begins fighting on the edge of the cliffs, risking their lives over the stolen money in the briefcase. There’s only one way to find out how this ends, and that’s to watch the video below. More...
