Vintersea have premiered a new video for their song “The Holy Procession.“ This track is from the band’s 2017 album “The Gravity Of Fall.“ That effort is set to be reissued on October 16. The vinyl version of the reissue will also include the group’s “Asterion : Constellations” EP.
Frontwoman Avienne commented::
“‘The Holy Procession‘ is the first song we wrote as a band. We wanted to produce a video that captured the magic in the room when we wrote that song. All the stops were pulled to make this video in terms of dramatism and performance from both the band and actors in the video. We are happy to show how much we have matured in both our performances and video production quality. ‘The Holy Procession‘ has been a band- and fan-favorite, and we are proud to release a music video for it as an accompaniment to the reissue.”
Bassist Karl Whinnery added:
“I came into the band after the first album was released and ‘The Holy Procession‘ was my favorite track. This video was tricky. Our initial filming dates were canceled due to the biblical fires that hit Oregon and choked our skies. Some of the outdoor shots were before the air quality went off the rails and everything had a red overtone.
We decided to incorporate that into the video as an undercurrent theme. On a more positive note, we were lucky enough to film at a beautiful turn-of-the-century church in Albany, Oregon. A group is working hard to move it to a new location and make it a community, event and music center. You can see their progress and help their mission at albanycumberland.org!”
