In other Cattle Decap
news…the band have wrapped up the “Regret & the Grave
” video shoot! The band had the following to say about the shoot:
"We would like to thank everyone that showed up for our video shoot on Sunday for the song “Regret & the Grave
” which appears on our new album, 'The Harvest Floor'
! We managed to pull off some serious guerilla style filming right in the middle of a busy park with frightening “shock troopers” walking and pacing around in full regalia and the volunteers helped offset that with their “normal” and toned down looks. We really appreciate all the hard work and waiting around you guys did!!! Special thanks to the main actors Carey Rainey
and Christine Simko
for putting in the extra hours… THANK YOU!!!
The video should be ready for viewing within a couple weeks, just a couple more scenes to shoot and we’re DONE! It’s going to quite a disturbing piece of footage to say the least."
