Lyric video of song upcoming Skyclad album

Skyclad forward into the past

SKYCLAD are releasing their brand new lyric video for the track ‘Change is Coming’ taken from their forthcoming album ‘Forward into the Past’ out on April 28th in Europe on Listenable records. (Review)

Popular for their original influential sound mixing heavy metal and traditional folk, their lyrics have generally been permeated by political, social and environmental matters and the new album is no exception as Kevin points out clearly « The songs are about politics, the environment and the music business and so on. »

‘Change is coming’ displays a series of actual images depicting the state of the world according to the band. It is shown as a Tv breaking news and enhance the reality factor.
The video was edited and directed by Fernando J. Martinez.

Kevin Ridley comments about the video :
“When we first started discussing doing videos for the new Skyclad album with director/editor Fernando J. Martínez, we decided that didn’t want to do ‘typical’ band videos and for ‘Change Is Coming’ we wanted to do our own take on a ‘lyric video’” The images help to show the extent of the problems humanity has created and our seeming inability to make much progress in tackling them and, indeed, some people’s disregard for the consequences.”

‘Change is Coming’ audio can also be listened on our bandcamp page.
