Wolves At The Gate Releases New Music Video For "Dead Man"

Wolves at the Gate is excited to release a new video for "Dead Man," the first official single from the band's upcoming debut full-length, "Captors" - available in stores and online July 3rd from Solid State Records.

"It was quite difficult for us to come up with a concept and treatment for this video that effectively communicated the lyrical content without literally following every single lyric," says guitarist/vocalist Stephen Cobucci. "But the joint effort from us, [director] Nathan Lundquist and Jon Ringle really brought a beautiful visual depth that we could have never conceived on our own. I am so very pleased with the CGI elements in the video as they are a perfect fit for the concept of the song and video. When Nathan approached me about shooting our performance shots in front of a green screen, I was apprehensive because I didn't want to look like local tv weather men, but he completely helped communicate a beautiful Gospel message though the video."

"The story, in short, follows a boy who is broken over the death of his father," Cobucci continues. "As he goes through his dad's memories he discovers a checkered past of violence, malice and hatred and is undoubtedly torn to pieces by the thought of his father not being the loving and Godly man he remembers. A photo of his father's baptism reminds him of his fathers turn from wickedness and his embrace of a life serving and loving the Lord. Romans 5:6 'You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly.' It is the beautiful story of God's redemption in the life of a man possessed by sin and wickedness. Our aim is to show that Jesus Christ paid for those very sins on the cross do that we no longer have to live under this sin. Colossians 1:13-14 'For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins."
