Caligula’s Horse took the prog rock and metal scene by storm with their 2013 release, The Tide, the Thief & River’s End. Now in anticipation of a headline run of their home country Australia, the group has released a brand new video for the track “A Gift To Afterthought” via Revolver Magazine.
The video offers fans a taste of Caligula’s Horse’s explosive stage performance. As guitarist Sam Vallen explained to Revolver, “The mindset of this video was to build the entire production around showing what we do live, down to bringing in our touring lighting and visual technicians and giving them free reign. Probably the most memorable moment was between takes, when everyone was chugging down Red Bull and soaked in sweat, Will Hunter and Eric Jinks (our lighting and visual technicians respectively) cranked Darude’s ‘Sandstorm’ through the PA with a spot-on light show. It was like everyone in the crowd was in on the joke, and the theatre became a dance club for 10 minutes.”
Check out the video above, which will have to hold fans over till Caligula’s Horse releases its new album later this year.
