Perth thrash band AS LIGHT DECAYS has released their latest video for the single ‘The Torrents Fall’, a song that is dedicated to all the farmers across Australia. Off their latest album SYSTEM OF DIVISION, the video highlights a tale of an Aussie farmer facing the battles that come with tackling our sunburnt land.
“The Torrents Fall is a quintessentially Australian tale of an Aussie farmer who is battling a crippling drought and facing the loss of his livelihood until the rains finally come and bring salvation. It showcases resilience and strength in the face of adversity,” explains singer Jamie Gaitskell, “since writing The Torrents Fall in 2019, it’s been a staple in all of our live sets, and it’s personally one of my favorite songs to perform.”
“We recently celebrated National Agriculture Day in Australia (November 19),” guitarist Brett Dunsire explains, “so the timing is perfect for everyone to celebrate all that the farmers do to feed the nation, often through much hardship.”
The video, directed by Peter Renzullo and shot across two very classic Australian locations, aims to pack an emotional punch- highlighting the strong story in the track. With personal experience amongst some of the band members working the land, the band hopes to showcase and rally support for local farmers.
