After The Burial Comments On "Pendulum" Video Delay

The Minnesota-based quintet After the Burial has finally broken the silence in regards to the status of the band's new promotional video for the track, “Pendulum,” which is off "In Dreams." The aforementioned video was shot last December, but has since been held up due to legal issues beyond the band's control. A press release from the band reads as follows:

"The general concept of the video was to have the band invade an all girls Catholic school and give them all the opportunity to have some uninhibited fun. Throughout their performance in the school's gym the director and other various crew members encouraged the girls to let loose and go wild to accompany the chorus of the song where the band yells 'we lose control.' Well, apparently some girls took everything a little too far by grinding on each other, in addition to displaying other inappropriate lewd conduct, creating an environment that got the conservative Catholic chaperones on the set into a frenzy. The director's production company was since hit with a cease and desist notice essentially delaying the release of this video."

In the meantime, you can check out stills from the shoot now exclusively at the band's Facebook page.

After the Burial will be performing at Bamboozle in NJ this Sunday and will head directly from there to meet with director Scott Hansen (Alesana, Animals As Leaders) to shoot a new video for the track “Your Troubles Will Cease and Fortune Will Smile Upon You.” Look for the band on tour throughout May with Norma Jean, Motionless In White, For The Fallen Dreams and Stray From The Path.
