IN THIS MOMENT shot a cowboy themed video for the track “The Gun Show” in the Los Angeles, CA area on May 16th. The shoot was helmed by acclaimed director David Brodsky (Suicide Silence, The Black Dahlia Murder) and Chris Howorth (guitars) checks in with the following report: “We just wrapped shooting our newest video for ‘The Gun Show’ and every member of IN THIS MOMENT feels like we were in a car crash. We haven’t played any shows since December and after a full day of headbanging we all have legitimate cases of whiplash, but it was well worth it. We all had a blast and know this video is gonna turn out awesome!
“We enlisted our good friend David Brodsky to direct the video. We met Dave a few years ago and became friends and after working with him on our ‘Forever’ video in 2008, he was our first choice for ‘The Gun Show.’ Dave is a very talented guy who has a real passion for making videos and we consider it an honor to be working with him again. Maria Brink and Dave came up with a really interesting treatment for the video and I don’t wanna spoil anything but it involves guns, cowboys, hot cowgirls and headbanging. We also invited a small group of fans to help us make the video extra special. We were feeding off their enthusiasm and energy and it just made the whole thing kick more ass. We always love to involve our fans, without our fans we wouldn’t even be doing this. I can speak for the whole band in saying this is the most fun we have had making a video and we can’t wait to see the results in a couple of weeks. I think people are going to be very pleasantly surprised by the song and the video. Welcome to the fucking gun show!”
