The guys from Hollow World, today, released the official video for their new single ‘Defiling Paradise’. The single, premiered last week on triple j’s THE RACKET, will be available to the world on the 25th of November on all online stores. They are taking over Melbourne’s Workers Club on Friday 18th of November to launch the brutal, searing single.

The ‘Defiling Paradise’ clip was directed by Miki Simankevicious, shot by Cameron Zayec and edited by Aaron Carroll, filmed in a private blue stone quarry in Avalon, Victoria. The audio was recorded with Systematic Productions’ Ermin Hamidovic, along with the rest of the forthcoming album. This single is the first sample of the album, which explores the themes of humans’ destruction of the world’s natural resources.

“We set out to make the clip a visual reflection of the themes of filth and decay that the lyrics explore. As the song is about man taking something beautiful and destroying it in the name of greed, we wanted the visual representation of the track to represent us in a similar manner. It was shot in that disjointed way because we thought it added to the creepiness of the lyrical themes,” says Theo Goslett, guitarist in the band.

Vocalist, Ben Roberts was forthright about the meaning behind the new single, ‘Defiling Paradise’ and the imagery behind the name and themes of the brutal track. “Defiling Paradise is about the transition of human thought from being part of nature to being above it. It’s about how once we began to develop into civilized societies, we inherently lost touch with how much we actually rely on the natural environment for our existence.”

Hollow World has shared the stage with Plini, At The Gates, Ne Obliviscaris, Psycroptic, King Parrot, Be’lakorBoris the Blade, Make Them Suffer, Bleeding Through, Frankenbok and ROME.

Hollow World’s single, ‘Defiling Paradise’ will be available at all good online stores from the 25th of November. Tickets for the single launch show are on sale now via Oztix.
