We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of Construct’s new music video for their song “Reflection” (watch it below). The track is taken from the band’s forthcoming album The Deity, which is scheduled to be released on February 4th. You can pre-order the album here.
Construct vocalist Callum Howle comments on the video:
“When we shot the video, we went in there with only half a clue of how it was gonna turn out. All we knew was that we wanted the concept to symbolise somebody’s spiral into chaos so that anybody could relate. So many people are crushed with self-doubt or mental illness and we wanted to highlight this. I think the video achieves exactly that and more – we are so proud of it.”
Taking the uninhibited vigor of TesseracT and Periphery crossed with the likes of Scar Symmetry and Protest The Hero, Stoke-on-Trent’s Construct have a sound that is as immense as it is captivating.
Construct started life at the start of 2015, but the early roots of the band were sown in 2013 when Richard Howle (Guitars), Callum Howle (Vocals), and Samuel Hunt (Drums) got together to work on pre-composed material that Rich had engineered. The crew started small, practicing in the cozy intimate surroundings of Sam’s living room, and then soon expanded on their initial endeavors, recruiting bassist Christian Lovatt in 2014. Last year, the band truly solidified when Guitarist Mike Foxall completed the line-up; his instrumentation and backing vocals have further rounded the band’s growing sound to gigantic effect.
By the turn of this year, the five-some were primed and ready to take their live set on the road, regionally and beyond. On their journey, the band shared stages with Griever, Outright Resistance, XVII, and Tussk along the way. The next port of call for the progressive metal crew was to head into the studio to begin work on their debut album The Deity.
Construct finished the recording of The Deity at the end of the Summer, and it’s rightly worth the wait. The band release Reflection as the first video and it’s a true scorcher. The cut is armed with stout riffs, thoughtful structuring and a humongous refrain. With a tour lined up in the new year to support the album, nothing will stop Construct.
