DAVEY SUICIDE premiered the music video for the album’s title track on, ThursdayOctober 24, via Alternative Press who described it as “A cross between George Lucas’ 1971 sci-fi thriller THX 1138 and a titillating vampire movie (with a slight tribute to Aphex Twin’s ‘Come To Daddy’).”

Directed by Richard Villa III of Exhibit A Gallery, the video takes place in the year 2039 in a dystopian society that has dissolved the rock genre. Watch the “Rock Aint Dead” video in full below. (Note: Skip ahead to the 6:13 mark for just the single.)

In a not so distant future, all aspects of human existence are being controlled,” DAVEY SUICIDE says, explaining the video. “Where ‘silence is a virtue’ and most freedoms like artistic expression are forbidden in a world of fabricated reality. Those in power have determined that Rock music has no redeemable qualities, is corrupting the culture and is no longer an acceptable form of music or entertainment.”

In the year 2039 in Los Angeles, Rock music is no more than delusional memories of a sadistic past of the unevolved. Rock music and other antisocial expressions are forbidden in this new perfectly sterile society. All creative expressions have been deemed socially toxic and poison to human uniformity. The only way for anyone to be expressive or to experience any form of creativity is through the illegal use of Drug Enhanced Virtual Reality (DEVR). This underground DEVR experience is only obtained by those who seek it on the streets of back alleys hidden in the shadows. For those wanting to participate in this type of DEVR experience, there is this warning:

‘This type of music is forbidden and any partaking in it is punishable by death. Proceed at your own risk'”
Would you like to proceed with your experience?

DAVEY SUICIDE previously shared the music video for the debut single “Medicate Me” which features guest vocals from Telle Smith (The Word Alive) and stars actress Scout Taylor-Compton (Rob Zombie’s Halloween I & II, The Runaways); check it out HERE.

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!
