Static-X debuted the video for its latest single this week.
The band debuted the video for its single ‘Dead Souls.’ The song is the fourth single from the band’s recently released album Project: Regeneration Volume 1. Its debut follows the debut of the album’s other singles ‘Bring You Down,’ ‘All These Years,’ and ‘Hollow.’
The band’s ‘Dead Souls’ video features a blindfolded woman in a forest setting seemingly controlling a masked figure in a city, who ends up capturing a man and bringing him to the forest for the apparent mystic. The mystic ends up binding the man’s hands and leads him away as the video ends.
The musical arrangement featured in ‘Dead Souls’ is an example of the change that Wayne Static displayed in his vocal performance style before his death as well as the approach to songwriting taken by Static’s band mates — Tony Campos, Ken Jay, and Koichi Fukuda since Static’s passing. Ministry founder/front man Al Jourgensen provided a guest vocal performance for the song.
Campos discussed Jourgensen’s appearance on the song in a recent interview.
“This song has become one of my favorite tracks on the record,” said Campos. “We had no intention on doing a video for it initially, but it came out so good, we had to do it. I’m so grateful to Al Jourgensen for singing on the track with Wayne. Ministry was a big influence on us, and I know Wayne would’ve been just as stoked as I am to have Al sing on one of our records. I think the video fits the song really well. It’s dark, creepy, with just a touch of humor.”
