Look out, Gumby — the claymation world got a little heavier today with the release of the latest The Convalescence single and music video for “No Survivors.” Shot entirely through clay animation, the video is a unique and quirky look into what a heavy metal video could be.
Vocalist Keith Wampler said the classic sci-fi franchise Aliens served as a major focus. It also helps, he said, that the song features Carnifex vocalist Scott Ian Lewis, who adds a whole other dimension to the track.
“The single is one of the hardest-hitting songs we’ve ever released. The lyrics and video were inspired by the Alien films, and having Scott doing some nasty guest vocals really helped give it the brutality we were looking for. We played it live throughout our recent European Tour and absolutely loved the energy it brings to the stage. We’re looking forward to this one being a part of our live show for many tours to come. This new album is basically like one big horror movie, song by song each one tells a story. Each one is brutal in its own way.”
In addition to a new album in the works to go along with this new single, The Convalescence are heading out on tour this March with Casket Robbery and Ignominious. The 16-date tour will start in Jackson, Michigan on March 10 and come to an end on March 25 at Chersterfield, Michigan.
