Hunt The Witch announce multi-site launch of new video 'Sold the World' today

07 October 2019 - 0 Comments

Auckland-based heavy rockers Hunt The Witch have teamed up with a posse of independent radio shows and websites to launch their brand new video for Sold the World.

The video will be launched simultaneously across sites in New Zealand and Australia from midday today. Fans can visit sites across the country from Whangarei to Invercargill, as well as Brisbane’s 4ZZZ.

By sharing it as widely as they can, Hunt the Witch want to send a very big "thank you" to the independent music community for their support of local artists.

The video for Sold the World is directed by respected photographer Paul Taylor, who has made videos for Kendall Elise, Bleeders and The Checks to name but a few.

The song is written by singer Sam Whitley; it's is an observation of our current political and economic system, driven by a constant need for economic growth, but inevitably unsustainable. Driven also by a select few governments and corporations – as he calls them, 'the paper men'. They fight wars to protect their interests and doom us with their greed.

Sold the World is from the debut album by Hunt the Witch: Strange Gods, released in May this year after 6 years of crafting their sound.

The album showcases the talents of singer Sam Whitley, Bevan Carbines (guitar), Jason Clarke (bass) and Pumpkinhead's Jason Peters on drums, presenting a supernatural combo of scorching stoner-rock riffage, powerhouse percussion and Whitley's possessed vocals. The live shows introduce new bassist Andrew Woods.

They may be heavy, but Hunt The Witch have eclectic influences – their name comes from the Bloc Party track ‘Hunting for Witches’.

Sold the World debuts from midday today on the following sites:

The Axe Attack 
The Generator FM 

Manic Mondays (Radio Southland) 

Millsy Rocks (Radio Southland) 

The Molten Metal Radio Show 

Muzic.net.nz 
The NZ Show – 4ZZZ Brisbane
