WATCH: Shadowpact – “Bats in the Belfry”

Never-Nervous.com

Are you ready to get spooked the fuck out? Well I wasn’t, but here we are. In fact, here I am 23 minutes after I was supposed to leave work sitting at a computer and typing about Shadowpact, because they’ve got that kind of power over me. That’s right: I could go home and kick off my weekend, but this video is fire like that and you all need to see it. Why you might ask? Because this song is the best and it’s super catchy. And the video is a fun, lo-fi horror romp that sees our protagonists apparently making an actual shadow pact with a bunch of robbed figures looming in the background who ultimately murders everyone and throws them in the Ohio river. That’s heavy shit, and a serious commitment to your craft that you would get into the Ohio on purpose for art; respect them.

The video is super fun and, I believe, shot by Allen Poe. It recalls the best of 80’s horror, which our man Phil here is obsessed with. It reminds me of those sorts of slasher films that would make Tipper Gore cry back in the day, the kind that freaks out all the squares and makes old people afraid of devil worshippers running around and ruining it for everybody, whatever “it” is. It’s just great to see folks having fun and leaning into the season with their work, and we are proud to debut this video here at Never Nervous, even if it means leaving work now half an hour after closing time. Watch it below and spread it to the masses.

WATCH: Shadowpact Performs “Bats In The Belfry” Live Inside Never Nervous Headquarters

A few weeks ago, we had Shadowpact on The Never Nervous Podcast. After the interview, they agreed to perform a song from their upcoming EP Stone The Crows inside Never Nervous Headquarters AKA my living room.  This is the third in a series of casual live videos that we have been fortunate enough to put together.  This particular showing was such a good time, as these dudes were flawless (as usual).

Stone The Crows is scheduled to hit the streets this Friday, August 28th via Little Heart Records, and to celebrate its release a kick-ass show is set to happen that very night at Highlands Tap Room.  Joining them will be Skyscraper Stereo, Kogan Dumb, Bonez and Allen Poe… what a fucking lineup!
