This video was created for The Whisky Priests 2018 Bloody Well Back Reunion Tour as an Intro/Walk On piece to be be projected behind the band/stage before and during their entrance onto the stage. The idea behind the video was to attract the audiences attention and build up an atmosphere/tension/excitement before the shows began. The imagery is based around North East working class culture (particularly mining and other heavy industry) and the area itself alongside notable places, people and objects to inspire pride in the region's heritage. The music, written by Mick Tyas (RIP) was recorded and produced by Jake Lucas, with a deliberate build in drama and tension as the video plays, with the band arriving onstage during the final crescendo and belting straight into their first song.
