Dead Letter Circus, ‘I Am’ – Exclusive Video Premiere
Aussie rockers Dead Letter Circus continue to make inroads around the world with their new album ‘The Catalyst Fire’ and the latest instance is the powerful new video for the single ‘I Am,’ which is premiering outside Australia right here on Loudwire.
The clip takes place in a futuristic society where faceless alien beings rule, keeping the population entranced with television screens playing out life before them. But there’s one child (portrayed by frontman Kim Benzie’s real-life son) that’s part of the resistance that has a fiery demeanor that could save us all. The ‘I Am’ video is actually a continuation of the story the band began to tell in their ‘Lodestar’ video, which can be seen here.
Benzie says of the video, “We are super pumped to unveil the video for our next single, ‘I Am’. The clip, penned by myself and Director Simon Smith is the sequel to the clip for ‘Lodestar.’ Set in the possible future where people are being systematically divided, emotionally and spiritually in an almost factory farm way, we follow the journey of the boy as he awakens the sleeping mass and confronts their faceless masters.”
‘I Am’ can be found on Dead Letter Circus’ ‘The Catalyst Fire’ album, which has been released stateside by The End Records. It can be purchased via iTunes. Dead Letter Circus will begin their ‘Polymorphism’ tour of Australia on Jan. 8, joining Karnivool and Sleep Makes Waves on the trek. Dates can be seen here.
