With an impressive album production team that includes Terry Date (Pantera, Deftones, Slayer), Pelle Henricsson (Meshuggah, Refused, Cult of Luna), and Steven Jones (Bleed From Within, From Sorrow To Serenity); Centrilia has released a new music video for the track ‘Splitting Hairs / Spitting Teeth’ from their upcoming debut album ‘In The Name Of Nothing’:

Vocalist Gavin Marshall says: “The song is a reaction to my own habitual self-righteous thinking. Society is divided right now and tribal thinking is seeping into everything like a cancer. I found myself falling deeper and deeper into quasi-moral crusader territory, correcting everyone and constantly getting into unnecessary arguments about things that doesn’t really matter on the grander scale. It’s a toxic mindset to think you’ve got all the answers all the time; to be blind to the fact that we have more in common with our perceived ‘enemies’ than we don’t. I’m trying to reassert that control over my thoughts and reactions.”

Visually we wanted the music video to represent a literal onslaught of destructive rhetoric and how it eventually reaches a breaking point, over-spilling into violent reactions. Like the album, we wanted to take things up a fair few notches from our previous releases. We shot the video with the incredibly talented Stu Breadner (www.shootback.co.uk) on a sunny old firm match Sunday in the Drury Street basement bar, Glasgow. Thanks to the team involved we were able to involve stunts, props, makeup and special FX”, says Marshall.

‘In The Name Of Nothing’ is released 28th June via 233 Records.

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
