South Shields’ melodic prog-metal trio SMACK MAMMOTH kick off 2021 by dropping the music video to their track Gates Of Sleep, taken from the EP of the same name (released late 2020). The video is a crisply produced audio and visual delight, which sees the band performing together in a beautifully lit studio room and we’re delighted to be get an exclusive look at it.

Here, the band tells us a bit more about the track and the video that accompanies it…

“The video for Gates Of Sleep was our first planned release, but after the opportunity to work with Sapien Records came up, we decided to use it as a later single and video from our EP. It was great working with video director Ollie Rillands, the master, although he did make us stroke our faces a little bit more than we were comfortable with! We shot it in a break between lockdowns, and it feels like you can tell we were desperate to play. The wait to put it out was agonising, but we hope it was worth it.”
