FEN Unveil “Shocking” Video ‘The Glove’
July 23, 2013, 2 years ago
Following on the heels of their groundbreaking marionette video for ‘Miracle’ off the Trails Out Of Gloom album, Vancouver progressive rockers FEN are now set to release the latest video for ‘The Glove’ from their fifth and latest album Of Losing Interest.
About the video, main Fen man Doug Harrison says, "I came up with the video idea based on an experience in a public men's room where a guy came out of the stall and wanted my help in putting a white, woolen glove on his hand, which appeared to have something wrong with it. I didn't know if it was a genuine request for help or a trick to get me in a vulnerable position. After I wrote the script, I showed it to the other guys in Fen but no one wanted to be in the video. I also showed it to the guys at our label Ripple Music to see if they would do it. They were apprehensive as well. The two main actors ended up being friends of friends, guys who didn't mind tussling around in a public washroom on camera while patrons from the ice rink came in to do their business.”
Fen's heaviest and most technical album to date, Of Losing Interest revisits the band's harder edged metallic past while retaining the melodic sensibilities that made Trails Out Of Gloom so alluring. Co-Produced by Mike Southworth, his fourth with the band, Of Losing Interest is a contrast of technical virtuosity layered against warm, low-end organics.
