Vesperia recently put the finishing touches on their brand new music video for the as-of-yet unreleased song, “The Western Tempests”. The band recently emerged from the famous Camp 30 - which is a dilapidated and abandoned prisoner of war camp in Bowmanville, Ontario.
"The new music video for ‘The Western Tempests’ is dark. Very dark," comments band bassist and frontman, Morgan Rider. "We built the story of the video around the five stages of grief: denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance. Spending from sundown to sunup over two weekends to give the video its clutching darkness and disturbing atmosphere have definitely given us the result we were looking for."
