Kissing Candice Release “South Circle” Music Video Featuring Ex-Motionless In White Keyboardist Josh Balz


A music video for Kissing Candice‘s latest single “South Circle” has recently gone up online. Tom Flynn (Lamb Of God, Body Count) directed the video, which features a guest appearance from ex-Motionless In White keyboardist/vocalist Josh Balz.

The group recruited special effects wizards Tom Savini and Jason Baker for their new masks for their new album cycle, some of which are featured in the video.

As for this latest track, bassist Mike Grippo commented:

“The main theme of ‘South Circle‘ is hypocrisy from people who don’t practice what they preach. Questioning organized religion is something we have touched on before, but this time we wanted to do it in a more direct way, set to a huge song with a catchy anthemic chorus. We wanted the song to be simple yet powerful, both musically and lyrically. We went about this with distinguished crunchy guitar riffs and OF COURSE killer bass tone, ‘South Circle‘ draws influence from the massive sounding songs we grew up loving in the early 2000’s.

We knew we had to make it as huge as the song. We got super lucky when Josh Balz offered up some help with it. He loved the song and just so happens to own a Church. He invited us down to his church, where we had our frequent video collaborator Tom Flynn drive out to meet us. We cleared the pews out of the way and set up some pyro and just went nuts for hours while Tom worked his magic. Josh also wanted to be in the video, so he makes his acting debut as the preacher dealing with the battle which rages on in his mind.”

The song will appear on the band’s forthcoming album “Manifest“.
