"The video was shot spontaneously at the start of the Tour during the sound check. It was only the second show with singer Nic Maeder and is the fastest video shoot of the band's history. The director from South America only needed one run-through. The film was shot in Chile, home of creative TV talent. In addition to the band, two known South American actors can be seen, the only 25-year-old Leon Bravo and the 24-year-old Paula Pardo." More...

Gotthard Posts New Music Video Online

Swiss hard rock outfit Gotthard has posted their new music video online for the song, "Starlight." You can check it out below. The video was filmed in an old animal food factory near Berlin, which has already made a name for itself: among others, some scenes from the film Inglorious Bastards were shot there.

"During the filming of the video, we could feel again that the chemistry between us and the fans was great," the musicians said. "We are sure this will be seen in the clip."

For the band, it is very important that some of those who have been fans for years should play a role in the filming. "We simply have the feeling that not only those of us in the band have become even closer but also our Gotthard-family, those who are in our surroundings, are close to us and shared with us the difficult unhappy months after Steve’s death. We want to show this in the video: we are a community and we are rocking together again!" More...
