THE ABSENCE Shoot First Video

Metal Blade recording artists THE ABSENCE shot their first professional video for the title track off their debut record, "From Your Grave", on February 3. This journey took the band from the greater Tampa Bay area up some 1200+ miles to Toledo, Ohio to film in one of the largest and oldest structures in Toledo's historic Old West End, The Collingwoods Arts Center. The Collingwoods started out as the convent for The Ursuline Order of the Sacred Heart, opening its doors in 1905. It is now a registered historical site, and claimed to be haunted.

THE ABSENCE were approached by the directors of Ignition Films LLC, Brian Taylor and Dave Ayling, whose previous works had already caught the attention of the band. "I remember seeing the 'Sacred Nothing' video by SUMMON (Moribund Records) on Fuse TV and thought for sure these guys would understand what we're looking for with our video." says Jeramie Kling.

"We're not going for some over-the-top super imposed full concept video," claims Patrick Pintavalle. "We just want to shoot somewhere interesting and have the main focus on us, meaning our music, not some silly story line."
