Continuing to set the world of metalcore afire with their recently released fifth full-length, ‘Black Flame’, Southampton’s Bury Tomorrow have now unveiled a video to accompany its third single, ‘More Than Mortal’.
The video acts as a commentary on attacking celebrity culture explains the band’s bassist, Davyd Winter-Bates.
“The idea of the video came from taking the theme of the song to its ultimate progression. The exploitation of the masses from celebrity and corporation is portrayed as its own pseudo-future religion and the Black Flame are here to bring it down. We wanted it to feel disorienting and nightmarish, physically showing the ‘lifting of the veil’ on celebrity culture exposing the exploitation and removing its power on those it preys on.
It was insanely fun working closely with the creative team on this one to do something different for us and the performances from Charity Kase and the rest of the actors are next level. The song has already become a fan favourite from ‘Black Flame’ so we’re very excited to bring that to life visually as well.”

The band’s fifth studio album, ‘Black Flame’, is out now via Music For Nations/Sony Music.
