The More I See Shoots "The Eye That Offends" Music Video On Star Wars Set

British metallers The More I See have finished shooting their first ever music video for the track "The Eye That Offends," on the set of one of the most legendary movies of all time: Star Wars. Earache Records comments:

"Long after being abandoned, TMIS - led by 22-year old Peterborough native James Cluer - traveled deep into the Tunisian desert to shoot what is undoubtedly one of the most visually stunning music videos ever made. With the ever-shifting desert sands gradually moving in and
reclaiming the land, the band chose to visit the iconic movie set before it's lost forever, capturing in the process a stunning performance in an equally stunning locale.

"See photos from the band's incredible journey at this location. Watch a video of the band arriving on the set below.

"To reach their awe-inspiring destination, TMIS drove for six hours across the desert with instruments and camera equipment in tow, pushing themselves to the limit in the sweltering desert heat as they set up and performed in numerous locations which will be instantly-recognisable to any fan of the films, all while avoiding rattlesnakes and the first rainstorm in four years - a rare occurrence which, coincidentally, also held up filming on the original Star Wars in 1976. Interesting facts about the band's journey:

Total miles travelled = 896
Number of hours spent in a cramped car = 23
Maximum temperature reached = 36 degrees Celsius
Total rain = 45 minutes
Number of abandoned cars spotted = 9
Number of creepy crawlies encountered = 7 snakes, 1 lizard, 11 beetles, around 500 giant ants, 20 donkeys, 2 camels and 1 falcon
Number of Star Wars quotes spoken during filming = approx. 100
Number of film set locations visited = 3
Number of places females in the crew refused entry to = 7

"'The Eye That Offends' is set to appear on TMIS' new album, The Disappearing Humans, which was mixed by producer Scott Atkins and mastered at the world-famous Abbey Road Studios with Steve Rooke. The album is due to be released later this year on Earache Records in Europe, and via Century Media/Earache Records in the USA."
