Jason Charles Miller debuted the video for his latest single this week.
Miller debuted the video for the song ‘Running‘ on Friday. The song is taken from Miller’s latest album Into The Wasteland (2018). Directed by outlaw country musician Bob Wayne, the video stars Alexander Ward (Westworld, American Horror Story Apocalypse, Sleepy Hollow) and professional Cosplayer Vivid Vivka as a pair of vampires in what proves to be a rather funny story.
Miller talked about the song’s creation and its tie to the video in a recent interview.
“When I wrote the song with Danny Worsnop (Asking Alexandria) and Blue Foley, we came up with the concept of a fallen angel who chose the devil’s side, but then changed his mind,” Miller said. “He realizes it’s too late to go back, but still tries anyway. A real heavy subject matter over a riff that’s almost surf rock in nature. There’s really no other song on the album like this, but the album would feel incomplete without it.”
In talking about the song’s video, Miller said a lot of thought went into the video’s creation.
“Bob and I were brainstorming one day about making a music video,” Miller said. “I played him ‘Running’ and we knew this was the one he should direct. I love Bob’s creativity and fearlessness when he makes videos. Rather than re-tell the story of the song, we thought putting vampires in a haunted house would make the whole thing a lot more interesting to watch. I mean, vampires! Lore behind vampires says some of them are fallen angels anyway, so it still worked with the concept. Getting Vivka and Alexander to play our vampires was the best part. They did such an amazing job.”
He added, “Finding the right house was key, and luckily I found out about the Historic Harris House through my friend Robert Coshland (who happens to own it), and it turned out to be the perfect place! We didn’t have to do a thing. It looks like that all the time! I consider the house one of the stars of the video as well. I couldn’t be happier with how it came out and I can’t wait to share it.”
‘Running’ is just the latest single from ‘Into The Wasteland’ to get the video treatment. The video for ‘Hundred Pound Hammer‘ debuted in November. The video for the album’s title track debuted in June.
