New Video "POWER"

This is the new video for "Power", off of the "Yellowseed" album and was directed by High Impact Designs MultiMedia. We shot the video in the remains and rubble of what used to be the East Hills Shopping Center on the Eastside of Pittsburgh in the area I grew up in. The rugged landscape complimented the grittiness of the song as well as of my music and the environment it was influenced by.
