Music Video Monday: Black Rock Revival

Posted By on Mon, Mar 30, 2015 at 12:03 PM

"The song is simple if you want it, take it. Freedom, quality of life, and the right to express yourself,"  says Black Rock Revival's Sebastian Banks. "What could better express the push and pull of life than a wrestler?"

This clip for the band's new single, "If You Want It", produced by Banks and helmed by Atlanta-based director Nina Stakz, combines some hardcore wrestling action with moodily lit performance footage. 

"We shoot this in a one-day, 10-hour shoot," Banks says. "The planning was key, with storyboards, fight choreography, and locations. We also where going for things we don't usually see, an all-Black cast for a hard rock video. The action had to match the speed and intensity of the guitars and commanding vocal. Hopefully we made something MTV worthy and Memphis strong."
