We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of Rest’s new music video for their song “Form, Deform” (watch it below). The track is taken from the band’s forthcoming album Precept, which is scheduled to be self-released on June 2nd and available through the Deathwish distro. You can pre-order the album here.
The band comment on the video:
“The video was a film put together by Jake Lutter, our friend who is currently attending Massachusetts College of Art and Design. Both him and the band directed the music video. The video itself is, ‘a reminder of the pathways we travers in our mind during every day life,’ as our singer Kyle says. In my own words, we were trying to show that a lot goes into how a person perceives things, especially past experiences. We tried to emulate the past as much as possible and show people what happens to your mind over the course of time when you feel abandoned by using old and abandoned buildings as well as overgrown fields as the scenery for most of the shots. It was the first time I’d been involved in a music video process, so I definitely enjoyed it quite a bit and am very happy we shot it using Super 8 film. I think that definitely helped capture that sort of ‘time-worn,’ feel we were going for.”
Rest is a four-piece band from Holliston, Massachusetts. After multiple self-released EPs including Rest and Destroy Me, Rest continues their DIY-trend with the release of Precept.
Precept is the band’s debut album, engineered and mastered by Zach Weeks (Burglary Years, lovechild, Cerce, Animal Flag). The album takes on many different forms and tones, blending various influences ranging from 90s grunge to metal. All lyrics were written by Kyle McGandy and all songs were written by Rest.
Rest will be doing an East Coast tour July 7-16 to support the new release. Stay tuned for more details.
