Low Twelve, in conjunction with Bassline Video, has produced a music video for the song "Brutal World." This song originally appeared on the band's debut CD release "Flesh of the Weak" in December of 2000. The band re-recorded the song with its current lineup in early 2011 at Sonic Haven Studios in Bloomington Illinois. This re-recording of the song will appear on the band's next CD release, "Skin in the Game," due out in early 2012 on DBC Records. The band commented on the clip:
"The music video was shot in May in the group's hometown of Bloomington Illinois at an abandoned commercial building in the process of being demolished. At the time of the video shoot, the facade and some of the parking lot was demolished, making the building safe to occupy, but leaving behind an interesting backdrop of crumbling concrete, hanging water pipes, and broken glass.
"The music video was directed, edited, and produced by Low Twelve frontman Pete Altieri with his newly formed Bassline Video company. They also hired photogapher Mary Heern of Fia Marie Photography for stills that were used in the video and for promotional purposes."
Pete Altieri also commented, "We couldn't have found a more appropriate place to film the Brutal World video. The place looked like a bomb went off, and we knew that it would look great as a backdrop for the video."
