Reveal Official Video For One Chapter Ends For Another To Begin
From New Album Renaissance In Extremis Out Now

Akercocke are proud to present their first promo video from the new album Renaissance in Extremis.

The video has been directed by Khaled Lowe. The treatment produced by Khaled and his team mirrors the story of the protagonist in the song. The dark surrealism sees the central character at the ultimate point of personal despair. Despite his plans to end it all he realises that it is not his time. That there is still hope. It’s a skilful visually told story about coming back from an emotional and psychological brink. Khaled and his team used their creative vision and technical expertise to tell the story perfectly. Utilising 4K Steadicam time-lapse and drone cameras the final result is a haunting visual feast
