In the spirit of Hallowe’en, we’re bringing you Mikey Manville’s freshly released video for Bloodthirsty from his brand new LP, Nocturne Only.
The video is an interesting journey where Mikey plays himself and the devil. We’re big fans of the video treatment. Check it out!
The haunting melodies play perfectly into the campy 70’s horror feel and filmmaker Brett Pedersen has done a great job of capturing the essence of Bloodthirsty.
Shot in a recently excavated quarry and a cabin deserted in the woods of Northern Ontario the video is spooky and yet fun to watch and lays out the perfect story.
The video for Bloodthirsty was filmed over 2 days and nights in Temagami and it helps us to explore the theme of good and evil. We’re fans and we hope you like it too!
A little background for you, in case you didn’t know. Mikey Manville is the frontman for rock trio The Manvils and we’re pretty excited that he’s branched out with this side project.
“Recorded in Chicago at Akred’s Clodock Recording Parlour, and completed in an 1870’s hunting lodge-converted studio in Redwood City, California with producer John Akred, Manville’s tunes hold compelling stories mixed with care. The helping hands of drummer Scott Moore (Mezodigm), Ryan Dahle (Mounties/Limblifter), Megan Bradfield (Limblifter), and Pat Steward (Odds/Bryan Adams) have helped shape the melody-driven sonic landscape of Nocturne Only.”
Tickets are available at the door for Mikey Manville’s video and vinyl release show at The Cadillac Lounge – 1296 Queen St. West, in Toronto on October 31. Doors are at 8:00 pm with the opening band taking the stage at 9:00 pm. Mikey will be joined by Joan Smith (Little Foot Long Foot) & The Manvils so don’t miss it.
Note: A limited run of 45 RPM, 180g vinyl of Nocturne Only will be released on October 31 via Fab Distribution.
