Today, SoCal experimental metal group CHRYSALIS are unleashing their brand new music video for the track ‘My Forsaken’, cut from their new album Focus On The Center. The music video is being simultaneously premiered via Revolver Magazine and Metal Hammer Magazine today. Take a look at the video here via Revolver, but make sure to have your holy bibles and crosses handy – the music video features the performance of a true-to-life exorcism.
The ‘My Forsaken’ video was directed by Alexander The Titan, but was birthed from the mind of CHRYSALIS’ Yessi Burton himself. “‘My Forsaken’ is an exorcism of my demons, but the priest tries to rid me of the good parts of my soul too. A lot of running ensues.”
In the past month, CHRYSALIS have released two brand new tour blogs chronicling their current U.S. tour with Lose Control, which kicked off on July 5th in San Diego. The band is currently traveling through the great state of Texas, but made sure to update their fans before they hit the east coast. Check out their first two updates here, showing live footage, general tour antics, and more:
