Following the premiere of the video for the track “Taking Off The Edge” back in October, the second in a series of videos from the new album When Push Comes To Shove has now premiered and is ready for viewing for the track “By The Skin Of Your Teeth”.
I’ve always wanted to do a video based on a live performance but have never really had a situation where any Soft Riot live performance was filmed in any edited manner. This opportunity came when playing Hamburg while on tour this past September and the venue crew edited some live video together which my video partner Sharon and I did some processing, giving the footage a psychedelic, visual effect. It then becomes a bit less of a standard live video document and more of a visual that captures the energy of the track, working more as a club visual.
The video was shot on the MS Stubnitz in Hamburg, which is a long running live independent venue in Hamburg. Like many other live venues it’s under threat of urban development and needs support from its donators, which can be done at ms.stubnitz.com . As a lot of our music scene hinges on inspirational live shows in venues, it’s important that venues such as this one remain to provide that experience.
Further videos from this album will be premiering in the near future so stay tuned.
