Belgium’s Newmoon – Bert Cannaerts (vocals/guitar), Giel Torfs (guitar/backing vocals), Philippe Corthout (guitar), Robby Geybels (bass) and Stef Gouwkens (drums) – reveal the proper video for ‘Head Of Stone’, a preview of their richly convincing and intense wall of sound, taken from their forthcoming debut album ‘Space’, due for release October 14 via PIAS.
‘Head Of Stone’, inspired by the unshakeable feeling of isolation often felt when traveling foreign lands, it was written by Cannaerts during a trip on Japanese bullet train between Tokyo and Kyoto. “We wanted to make a stylistic video for Head Of Stone”- reveals Bert – “The flowers represent cycles of life, mirrors mark a process of introspection and self-acceptance. We wanted to match the artwork (designed by Touché Amoré’s Nick Steinhardt) too”.
