I was recently lucky enough to see an article in The Ardrossan & Saltcoats Herald about an Irvine-based band called The Fall of Eve.
Apparently, they love filming their music videos in old buildings and so I took this opportunity to contact them directly and offer the iconic Barony St. John as a possible venue for a future video.
Lucky for me, they came around to view the church building and immediately accepted my offer. 😀
The band were formed in 2011 and describe themselves as a “Symphonic rock band”. They consist of founder Evangeline on vocals, co-founder Michael Moffat on guitar, Harry Butler on bass, Panos Rodopoulos on drums and Philip Morrison on orchestration.
Their fan base has continued to soar since 2011 and prompted a crowd funding campaign which enabled them to release their first album, Calls from the Horizon, in 2013 and their second album, Eternal Embrace, in 2015.
Most recently, they received funding from Creative Scotland’s Open Project Fund towards a promotional music video for their new EP, If Even Angels Fall – and that’s where I came in.
It seems an abandoned church was exactly what they were looking for this video to accompany their new EP’s title track “If Even Angels Fall“.
And they also wanted a night shoot. Whoohoo 😀
Here are some photos taken on the night;
I’m sure you’ll agree, the photos alone look fab – but I can assure you the single sounds brilliant too and so I can’t wait to see the finished video. 😀
They’ve definitely got the “Wow factor”!
Even more good news from the point of view of promoting the Barony St. John is that The Fall of Eve’s last video for the song “Destiny” (which was shot in the Trinity Church in Irvine) has so far had over 113,000 views – so lets hope this new video gets even more (and not only rockets The Fall of Eve to stardom but also helps puts the Barony St. John on the public’s radar once again).
The video can be viewed at on the band’s YouTube channel http://www.youtube.com/thefallofevemusic.
And their new EP If Even Angels Fall is available as a CD from http://www.thefallofeve.bigcartel.com and as a digital download from iTunes, Amazon, Google Play and other online retailers.
