Secrets Of The Sky Posts "To Sail Black Waters" Music Video

As debut full-length "To Sail Black Waters" nears release in the first week of October, today Oakland-based doom sextet Secrets of the Sky proudly unveils a new video for "Decline."

Check out the video below courtesy of MetalInjection.net. The following press release was also issued:

"Having sought out DIY director and filmmaker Andrew Nethery (Melvins, Kyuss Lives, Six Feet Under, Dead Meadow, Death By Stereo) to guide and capture their vision, Secrets of the Sky traveled to the Southern end of their home state and set up camp for several days. The vibrant video traverses through an extensive but abstract storyline shot in a variety of locations, as well as brilliant performance footage of the band filmed at Unit A Recording Studio, in Palm Springs, California. Through the years, the studio walls have recorded rock legends such as Queens of the Stone Age, Fu Manchu, and many more. The newest owner, Robbie Waldman, continues to operate it as a full recording studio, having recently recorded Brian Setszer, Karma to Burn, John Garcia and the list goes on."

The band comments: "We shot the video with director Andrew Nethery in the Coachella Valley; basically in the middle of the desert near Palm Springs. It's about a ten-hour drive from the Bay Area, but it was a no-brainer to go with Andrew based on the quality of his previous work for bands. There are definitely thematic conclusions to be drawn and an overall message to be had, but we didn't want to just give it away... choosing rather to keep it abstract and allow the viewer to decide what it means for themselves. The video is edited down for time and continuity reasons from the original 12 minute version which appears on the album."

Kolony Records will release "To Sail Black Waters" throughout Europe on October 4th and 5th and in North America on October 8th.
