Milwaukee pop punk act Direct Hit! have released the video for chapters VI-VII of the Brainless God horror story, featuring “Heaven Is a Black Hole” and “We’re Fucked.”
You can watch the video and read what Nick Wood had to say about it below.
Direct Hit! released their sophomore album Brainless God in September 2013 via Red Scare Industries. They have announced plans to release a DVD with all of the ‘chapters’ of the horror story, along with a vinyl version of the record.
“This is the part of the story where the cult who’s attempted to draw our protagonist into their suicide ritual follow through with their own plans, while she and her new serial killer best friend run off into the woods, trying to escape. You’d think that’d be the end of the story, but they’re in for kind of a rude awakening when the group rises from the dead and comes after them through the woods. There’s not a happy ending to this chapter, but if you keep following the story for the rest of the album, I think you’ll find it’s not the cult who gets the last laugh.
The shots for this video were taken around 4:30 AM out in a clearing in the middle of nowhere. At this point, the cast and crew were tired and pissed, and the amount of running around, dragging cameras through the grass, and makeup and gore effects had everyone on edge (to put it mildly). We were in danger of the sun coming up, which would have ruined the entire night, and we would’ve had to do the whole thing over. So it was a bit rushed, but I think it turned out pretty great. Especially the shots at the end. More than one person has asked how we got it to look ‘so real’ with kind of a weird look on their face.”
