Destrage Posts New Music Video

The Milan, Italy natives in Destrage are premiering a video for "Purania" today, the second single taken from new album "Are You Kidding Me? No." due out via Metal Blade Records on March 4th in North America.

Check out the video clip below, courtesy of FEARnet.com. The concept for the video was written by The TJS Collective and produced by Sara Bertagnolli and Gianluca Pagani. Destrage comments:

"We did the shooting on a freezing Sunday, in January 2013. Cold keeps people awake and reactive, but we didn't know it before that day! Anyway, a pretty large team of people was involved in the process of making this video. The Jack Stupid Collective came up with the concept together with the band, wrote the screenplay, set the style and organized the production. There was quite a lot of stuff to do. Location managing, set design (that place was a total blank warehouse). Casting, illustration, actor and extras managing and a lot of logistic shit. We also hired a D.O.P. and two camera operators, an electrician and everyone we needed on the set. When everything was shot, The Jack Stupid collective worked on it very hard for a few months in post production.

"It was a pretty exhausting process, especially the animation of every single drawing, but we're satisfied about the final result. We would like to thank everyone who was involved; you are too many to be mentioned, but you know who you are!

"The story is set in an imaginary city, Purania, where personal choice has been banned, and people are controlled by a central brain unleashing an army called Select & Defend, divided in small squads of Blamers and Erasers. An underground secret movement, which the government calls 'The Incoherents' is planning a revolt." More...

Destrage Releases New Video

The Milan, Italy natives in Destrage have released a brand new video for a track from their upcoming album, "Are You Kidding Me? No." Check it out below. Metal Blade Records also comments:

"The video, which can loosely be described as a lyric video, features a pair of zombies making their way through the Warrior Dash in Italy as lyrics splatter onto the screen. Lyrically, the song examines why we as humans enjoy killing zombies so much, and visually, the video is an entertaining dose of absurdity, as fans of Destrage have come to expect! 'My Green Neighbour' was directed and edited by guitarist Matteo Di Gioia at The Jack Stupid.

"Watch the video for 'My Green Neighbour' and order your copy of 'Are You Kidding Me? No.' at this location. 'Are You Kidding Me? No.' will be released worldwide via Metal Blade Records on March 4th in North America and February 28th/March 3rd in Europe/UK.

"Destrage recorded 'Are You Kidding Me? No.' at RecLab Studios with Larsen Premoli and at Adrenaline Studio with Daniele Nelli. Mixing and mastering was done by Will Putney at The Machine Shop in New Jersey. The cover illustration was done by Marco Tafuri and the layout was completed by The Jack Stupid." More...
