Pop Out For A Smoke


New video right here

Continuing a fantastic year, which has seen the band appear at Download Festival, release their debut EP The Hospital Party, play constant shows, and gain Rock Sound coverage & Kerrang TV airtime, West Yorkshire rock and rollers As Sirens Fall have dropped a video for storming new single ‘Smoke‘.

The story for Smoke’s video picks up from where previous video ‘Where You Are’ ended, which sees the leading lady get hit by a car on her way to meet vocalist Mikey. Mikey falls asleep waiting for her, and in his dream he goes on an adventure which slowly reveals the tragic story. In the ‘Smoke’ video, the story continues, however this time she’s the one showing Mikey where she is. What is the end result? You’ll have to watch and find out for yourselves.

Check out ‘Smoke’ below!

As Sirens Fall comment:

‘Smoke is about confusion. It’s about anger with God. It’s about mental illness, war, disease, famine, global warming, injustice and inequality. The unfairness of the world is continually denied by those benefitting from it, even though it is so plain to see.

The video for Smoke follows on from our previous video ‘Where You Are’. There’s not ever an explanation as to how Mikey gets to where he is up at the end of that video, but that’s pretty intentional. It’s meant to symbolise confusion and guilt. The feeling of responsibility when you put someone into a bad situation and feel like it’s your fault.

The weekend we made the videos was one of the most grueling but awesome weekends of all of our lives. We loved it so much. I think it was a solid 40 hours working but we got there in the end and we are so happy with them.”

In a cold practise room in an old mill in Keighley in late 2014, As Sirens Fall was born. The band launched themselves on the scene in spring 2015 with a homemade music video for début single ‘From Across The Waves’. Fast forward 12 months and over 100 shows, and the band were returning to the stage to scores of ‘ASF’ chants, to play an encore at a packed out Leeds O2 Academy, having just won the Soundwave Music Competition.

Following that seminal show, As Sirens Fall found themselves at Longwave Recording Studios with producer Romesh Dodangoda and engineer Rob Thomas (Bring Me The Horizon, Twin Atlantic, Kids In Glass Houses, The Blackout), working on their debut release, ‘The Hospital Party‘ which is out now.

As Sirens Fall recently announced they will be supporting electronic goth artist William Control on selected dates of his September UK tour. You can catch the Keighley band at the following shows –

14th September – Newcastle, Think Tank
15th September – Leeds, Key Club
16th September – London, Crowndale Inn
17th September – Birmingham, The Rainbow

Tickets are priced at £10.
