CANDIRIA and MetalInjection.net have teamed up to premiere the video for “The Whole World Will Burn”, which is taken from the band’s new record, While They Were Sleeping (out now via Metal Blade Records). While They Were Sleeping is a concept album conceived by the band’s lead vocalist Carley Coma that tells the tale of a failed musician who rises up against a monarchy in New York City. To watch the clip, comprised of black and white, slice-of-life footage culled from the band’s NYC Five-Borough “World Tour,” which took place during release week in early October, please visit: metalinjection.net
“The Whole World Will Burn” was filmed by Metal Injection’s Frank Godla. “Growing up in the music scene of Brooklyn, New York throughout the ’90s, Candiria have always held a special place in my heart as hometown heroes, and continue to today,” Godla comments. “Beyond their amazing talents as musicians and songwriters, they’re a band that inspires change, promotes acceptance, conquers barriers, and are some of the nicest guys I’ve ever had the pleasure of calling friends. It’s an honor and a privilege to work with them once again, in the form of a music video shot during their Five-Borough Tour. The run was truly something special to watch as a longtime fan from NYC, and creating it was as easy as watching them play five shows in a row…something I don’t mind doing every day!”
CANDIRIA‘s Michael MacIvor (bass) comments:“The Candiria Five-Borough Tour was an idea conceived by our team many months before our record came out. We wanted to give a little payback to all of our fans located in the boroughs. They have been traveling to see us for years. So we wanted to go to them this time. And we had an amazing time doing it. The people in these under-served markets were so happy and grateful for us coming to them. That it really was an experience the band will cherish forever.
We think that the video for ‘The Whole World Will Burn’ truly captured the vibe of a band from NYC. And how we interact with our people. Frank Godla did a great job. He is from NYC and a fan of the band. So he was able to capture everything we wanted. Frank is someone that we love working with, because first and foremost, he is a friend. He gets the band. He gets our vibe. And he knows what we want without us having to explain things in depth.”
