Taken Debut Their First-Ever Music Video


Taken have premiered their first-ever music video, which is  for their track “Reflect“, which you can find below. The band’s vocalist Ray Harkins said of the video:

“This is our very first video and it’s insane to say that some 20+ years after the band started but we wanted something intimate and meaningful to us rather than just setting us up in a warehouse and fake playing our instruments.

The live footage was taken by our good friend Chris Avis who tragically died in a van accident last year while on tour with a friend’s band and we wanted to memorialize him with this footage that he took of us when we played a show in 2016 in Los Angeles.

The footage of my wife and son are meant to symbolize the small moments that we both held onto while my wife was going through chemotherapy from going on walks, simple drives in the car and reading with our son. My son was really the only person that I could break down and be emotional with on a regular basis and we wanted to capture those moments as well.

The fact that so many creative people touched this video from the director Patrick Lawler and our videographer Ian Rees, we feel lucky.”

Late last month the band released their new EP, “With Regards To“, their first effort in nearly fifteen years
