Terror Shake Things Up With Animated “Cold Truth” Music Video

Terror have premiered the following music video for their track “Cold Truth” via Revolver. The clip marks a departure from the more standard video treatments for the band, as vocalist Scott Vogel explains:

“How many times can you make a video of us jumping around acting all mad at the world? I’m sure we’ll have a few more of those down the road, but this is a totally different, unexpected, and a fresh look for a Terror video, and that’s a cool thing.

Thanks to Carlo and everyone behind putting this thing together because, to be honest, we got off extra easy and didn’t have to do any of those really uncomfortable video shoots and nonsense. Plus, now we have a video with hookers, handfuls of pills, and dead rats in it.”

Modern Noise” sees Rogers reunited with his former Between The Buried And Me bandmate, Will Goodyear on drums. Longtime Between The Buried And Me producer Jamie King oversaw the recording sessions for the effort, which you can pre-order here. Rogers said of the album:

“This record was an outcome of me creating songs while not wanting to over evaluate the music. I wanted to record things that naturally came to me and because of this, the record feels like an accurate extension of myself. I took a more rock approach and really focused on writing simple yet dynamic songs. Lyrically, I feel it’s a great mix of storytelling and personal experience. “Modern Noise” is basically just saying this is my current noise on the earth. We all are here for a short amount of time and the noise we make is our memory.”
