After recording several tracks for Integrity Records whilst looking for a new single, Antihero debated long and hard whether old favourite 'Limb From Limb' or newie 'Stravinsky Gave Me Nightmares' should be the single. in the end they decided to give you both on one CD, a double A-Side if you will, with the 'duty calls' as the third track. The single Release date is currently penciled in for monday 20th January, that's next year.
The video for 'Stravinsky Gave Me Nightmares' is directed by Adam Mason, widely regarded as one of britain's finest young talents by Total Film and (ahem) Jonothan Ross, features the band in a "beautifully shot Evil Dead pastiche with us playing in a cage in the middle of a forest, whilst evil happens around. it's fast, furious and cool. it's just what we wanted. He rules. he pushed us for several hours into the night, in freezing rain and cold, just wearing t-shirts. and we still like him."
So, if all goes according to plan, you'll be seeing the video on MTV and hearing 'Stravinsky Gave Me Nightmares' on XFM and Radio 1 before the end of the year, the the single will be out on january 20th 2003.
