COMBICHRIST have revealed the very first music video cut from One Fire for their creepy, unrelenting, aggressive new anthem “Understand.” The video, directed by Jason Alacrity, shows a space traveler awaking from a long fall to find herself trapped inside of a bizarre, grotesque nightmare that could have been dreamt up by David Lynch himself.
COMBICHRIST mastermind Andy LaPlegua says about the “Understand” video: ”This might be the most important music video I’ve ever made. I’m addressing themes and personal feelings that to date I’ve kept hidden. Anxiety, fear, the unknown, and how they take a toll on people’s lives, on my life. This is the third video I’ve made with director Jason Alacrity, and his ability to translate these wild impulses and different ideas was a great challenge. But he, and the cast, really did an amazing job making the song come to life in an even more intense way. ‘Understand’ isn’t just about knowing, it’s about learning.”
COMBICHRIST will release their razor-sharp ninth full-length album, One Fire, on June 7, 2019 via Out of Line Music. Precise, lurking, ultramodern and merciless, One Fire is a retrospect and forecast in one for COMBICHRIST. Cold, industrial riffs mixed with ominous metal forge a sinister alliance and reflect a return to roots – molded by nearly two decades of experience and a futuristic outlook.
