We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of Ethos’ music video for their song “Spectre” (watch it below). The track is taken from the band’s latest release Shade & Soil, which is available here.
The band commented on the song & video:
The video was filmed and edited by Matt Cooper and features the band in a more candid studio environment than before. The song has a lot of interesting, interlocking parts and we thought it was important for the video to focus on that.
This song was written from my own personal struggle with depression. Sometimes we find ourselves in the darkest of places and it feels like we will never escape; it’s haunting and lonely and all you can do is hope it will get better. The truth is it does get better and I hope that, like myself, people can find catharsis in this song.
About the band:
Ethos is an American rock band known for their fusion of heavy rock riffs, classical piano, syncopated rhythms, and melodic vocals. Formed in 2009, the band consists of Austen Earp (lead vocals | keyboard | guitar), Kuyper Cummings (lead guitar | vocals), Nick Riggs (bass | vocals), Tribb Robison (drums | percussion) hailing from Atlanta, GA to Nashville, TN.
The group exhibits a technically rich yet accessible rock sound with roots in alternative rock, progressive rock, and post-metal. Their most recent record, Shade & Soil, has garnered attention for showcasing some of the group’s most impressive and melodic work to date. Perhaps the most elaborate example of this is the three part, “Archetype Suite,” brandishing a potent sense of orchestral theatricality by introducing characters and narratives cloaked in intriguing compositional motifs. Fearless grandeur turns to pensive stillness as Ethos explores songwriting with dynamic ferocity – and as their name suggests -demonstrates their ability to conjure a powerfully emotive and captivating listening experience.
