Gypsyhawk recently completed a video for their song Hedgeking from Revelry & Resilience. The video was directed by Simon Chan of Artificial Army and features the acting talents of the Australian born actor and body builder Guy Grundy. A behind-the-scenes video for Hedgeking was recently released and can be seen below.
The finished product, which brings to life the story behind the song, shows the Hedgeking (played by Grundy) casting aside his crown and taking up a life of selling his sword, warring and whoring.
Gypsyhawk will be on tour this fall as direct-support for The Sword. The 37 date U.S. tour commences October 29th in Corpus Christi, Texas and runs through December 18th. The opening bands on tour included Eagle Claw up through November 24th and American Sharks from December 2nd through December 18th.

“An album that’s easily equal to the band’s excellent debut, Gypsyhawk’s ‘Revelry & Resilience’ finds the band discovering more of its own voice, while still honoring the sounds of the 1970s.” MetalUnderground.com
