There’s no doubt that Huntress have one of the coolest videos of the year in ‘Zenith,’ as the Phil Mucci-directed clip that comes off like a black light poster come to life. Loudwire is teaming with Huntress to delve a little further into this creative clip by exclusively premiering a behind-the-scenes featurette from the video shoot.
As we see in this clip, much of the band’s performance was shot against a green screen, allowing Mucci to work his mastery after the fact. Jill Janus also offers a little insight on the song, revealing that it’s about smoking weed with aliens and seeing just how high you can go. As you can see, a lot of work went into making the video and the band is beyond pleased with the result. Janus also uses the platform to praise the fans for all of their support and dedicates the clip to them.
After watching the ‘Zenith’ behind the scenes featurette above, check the bottom of this post to see what the final video looks like. It’s a pretty impressive promo for a band on the rise. And speaking of being on the rise, look for Huntress pounding the pavement this fall, earning a spot on the Lamb of God / Killswitch Engage co-headlining run, which also features support from Testament. Dates for the trek can be found here.
Finally, Huntress are also teaming up with Loudwire to bring their faithful fans an opportunity to win an awesome Huntress prize package (pictured at left above).
