Alexisonfire Premiere “Mistaken Information” Music Video

Alexisonfire have premiered a new video for their song “Mistaken Information.” That track is from the band’s latest album “Otherness.”

Muted Windows created the clip and had the following to say about it:

“It was a wonderful experience to create the video for ‘Mistaken Information’ for the incredible Alexisonfire. We appreciate how receptive they were to the concept after listening to the song – immediately feeling a sort of hypnotic tone. The video is abstract in nature and much more about feeling.”

Director Nedda Afsari added:

“I love working on all-encompassing projects, making videos that tie into photos for album art. Michael E. Linn shot tons of footage for the album photo shoot and knew we wanted to incorporate that into ‘Mistaken Information.’ We created a deja vu world where dreams blend with reality, and nothing is certain.”
