TESTAMENT TO SHOOT VIDEO FOR "MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE"
Thrash metal giants Testament have chosen acclaimed video director Thomas Mignone (Avenged Sevenfold, Superjoint Ritual, Slipknot) to shoot the video for the first single from The Formation of Damnation, "More Than Meets The Eye." The video will be shot in LA.
Guitarist Eric Peterson commented on the shoot: "We're getting ready to shoot a video this weekend with director Thomas Mignone, and we're going for a twist on 'More Than Meets The Eye,' where things appear one way, then turn out something different. We're filming it all on green screen and going for the '300' look. The whole band very excited about the video."
Testament will also be featured in Music Choice's Rock U all month long during the month of June (with a re-air in July). Rock U is available on Music Choice Video On-Demand in over 31 million homes.
"In an era of disposable music, Testament has proven that they will NOT conform to anything... The Formation of Damnation is one of the best metal records in years!" - Gary Susalis (Music Choice)
