We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of The Gitas’ music video for their song “Purge” (watch it below). The song is taken from the band’s forthcoming EP by the same name, which is scheduled to be released later this year.
The “Purge” video was shot in Mecca, an abandoned town near the Salton Sea in California. “It was shot under weird circumstances including ghosts, cops and homeless strangers,” says lead singer/guitarist Sasha Chemerov.
Chemerov continued: “‘Purge’ is an act of purification by destruction so the concept of the video is the fight with your demons. Sometimes, humbleness is a call for massacre, but not calm sainthood at all. You have to be pretty strong to get your dark side out and release the pain.”
About the band:
Los Angeles-based band, The Gitas, is a uniquely explosive brand of soulful rock that incorporates hints of grunge, punk, pop and heavier elements. Garland was the EP that launched the band and the lead single “Mood For Love” held the #1 spot for 8 months on the European National Music Charts, above Eminem and Rihanna.
Spotify and Live Nation’s new video series, Music Happens Here, features The Gitas’ title track from their debut album, Beverly Kills, as the opening song for each episode.
Following the release of Beverly Kills, the band toured throughout the West Coast and had a completely sold out Eastern European Tour in the summer of 2017.
