Evidence One Finish "Virus In My Veins" Video

Evidence One is the hottest rock act right now! With their new record "Tattooed Heart,“ they infect rock fans all over the world with their unique, outstanding and ass-kickin’ Rock’N’Roll. Great reviews all over the press, which is talking about the best German Hard Rock album since Bonfire's "Fireworks“ milestone. Evidence One shot a video for the track "Virus In My Veins,“ done by Huckleberryking company, who did clips for J.B.O. and others. Vocalist Carsten Schulz called the shootings a real strange experience. "We shot it outside Nürnberg at a deserted factory, where it was nothing but awfully cold! The story was that I was a patient in a sanitarium, the real psycho! I was to be punished by rude wards to be saved and rescued afterwards by a, in fact, beautiful young lady named Sarah. Car chase... me breaking off the straightjacked, real cool! Unfortunately, when I had to break free and had to kick away chairs and stuff, I hurt my right foot that bad, that I could hardly walk the next day, but I had to do all the escape and running scenes the next day! Anyway, especially the performing with the band inside that old facility was awesome! Great video indeed!!! We shot 20 hours on two days.“
