For those that don’t already know, Eric13 handles guitar duty in Combichrist as well as vocals in Sex Slaves. Well, now this talented musician and solo artist is back with another slab of glorious, American underground rock n’ roll via the song “Devil’s Highway” (buy on iTunes). Out now, we’re stoked to help the The Philadelphia, PA rocker unveil the song’s music video which was filmed and directed by Eric13 himself on the back roads connecting Philadelphia to the New Jersey shore. Editing was handled by Eric Bower.
Said Eric13 of the song and video: “After writing about 50 rock and outlaw country songs in the last few years, I was yearning for new inspiration. I had experienced so much change in my life, and for better or worse, I looked in the mirror to face things about myself I hadn’t previously been willing to face. My new songs finally address those demons and intensely personal situations and I’ve never felt stronger or more confident with my song writing. ‘Devil’s Highway’ marks the beginning of a new era in my music, and this video a desire to develop the stories even more.
Making this video was an absolute blast. I love to create new characters, dive into fantasy worlds and craft elaborate back stories. So once I found “THE SPOT”, where I did the majority of the filming, (the dilapidated house and ‘path to nowhere’) the story and scenes revealed themselves. With every shot I was uncovering this swampy underworld where I could simultaneously bury my secrets and dig up the truth.”
