Davey Suicide, ‘God Head Killers’ – Exclusive Video Premiere
Let the revolution begin! Davey Suicide are poised for a breakthrough and Noisecreep is proud to bring you the exclusive premiere of the band’s latest video for ‘God Head Killers.’
The hard-hitting clip showcases some of the band’s live chops, as frontman Davey Suicide sings to the camera and keyboardist Needlz also earns significant screen time. Most of the shots are quick cutting, blending into each other with the visuals appearing a bit faded. Interspersed with the band performance footage are shots of insects, abandoned children’s bicycles, brightly lit light bulbs, sped up shots of youngsters moving about and a dilapidated basement.
Frontman Davey Suicide exclusively tells Noisecreep, “It was an off day in the dead of winter in Connecticut, when our friend Ted granted us access to an abandoned asylum. In the basement, is the resting place of a body which has the shovel in the ground next to it. (You will see this at the end of the video). We shot this video ourselves, did our own lighting and Needlz got behind the camera to direct and edit the video. Our friend ended up only wanting a hoodie and a t-shirt for letting us use the asylum for a day. He also lent us his daughter, who ended up starring in the video. All in all, the video cost us $55. It’s pretty insane what you can do, when you have an artistic vision. Behold and enjoy our newest masterpiece, ‘GOD HEAD KILLERS.'”
Having toiled in the industry for several years before forming the band, Suicide says he’s proud of the lineup he’s put together. It’s no wonder the clip has such presence from the band members, as the vocalist states, “We’ve assembled five guys who are essentially frontmen in their own right. I wanted to have all of the bullets in the chamber and fire them off at once. That’s what we’re about to do.”
As for the song, it’s an aggressive, adrenaline-fueled rocker with Suicide delivering an immediate-feeling message to the listener. In the chorus, the singer belts with in-your-face passion, “Fear is a God, fear is a God / Fear is a God and we’re God Head Killers.” For fans of acts like Marilyn Manson and Rob Zombie, Davey Suicide has a sound that falls somewhere in the middle of these two rock icons.
‘God Head Killers’ appears on Davey Suicide’s self-titled debut album. The disc is currently available via iTunes. The band is currently on tour as part of the ‘Hide Your Morals’ trek with The Bunny The Bear and the Defiled. The tour runs into mid-August and the remaining dates can be seen here.
