HIGH ON FIRE's "Rumors Of War" video, the first from the band's "Death Is This Communion" album, will make its "Headbanger's Ball" debut tomorrow (December 8) on MTV2. The clip was lensed in Los Angeles by director/producer Soren (UNEARTH, CEPHALIC CARNAGE, GREELEY ESTATES).
The band is currently in the middle of its co-headlining European tour with PELICAN. This will be followed by the second U.S. leg of the group's "Death Is This Communion" world tour beginning in mid-January. This five-week winter trek will include support from A LIFE ONCE LOST and SAVIOURS. Also joining the tour on various dates will be guests RWAKE, CAR BOMB, INTRONAUT and ARCHONS.
MetalKult.com recently posted a 14-clip question-and-answer video interview with HIGH ON FIRE guitarist/vocalist Matt Pike.
The video was shot on August 15 in New York City, when Pike was visiting the East Coast to promote HIGH ON FIRE's latest album, "Death Is This Communion" (Relapse).
During the interview Pike discusses the foundations of his brutal tone and style, HIGH ON FIRE's exotic sonic elements, the departure of bassist Joe Preston (THRONES, ex-MELVINS) and what HIGH ON FIRE's new bassist, Jeff Matz, brings to the mix. Also on MetalKult.com is a 25-minute video riff lesson with HIGH ON FIRE's Pike, in which the guitarist demonstrates how to play some of the classic riffs in his catalog, from SLEEP's "The Druid" and "Dragonaut" to HIGH ON FIRE's "Baghdad", "Blessed Black Wings" and "Turk".
