Crying Vessel started out as a solo project from Slade Templeton in 2010, since has become a band with drummer Basil Oberli and is signed by Cleopatra Records. The Swiss-American duo is widely celebrated in the Post Punk, Gothic and Wave genre as a leading act with the scenes revival.
Their second studio album Pleasures For The Wicked was built around being stuck between life and death, in a dark home of secrets and regrets. For it’s release the band wanted to pay homage to 80s Sci-Fi in the musicvideo for THE ABYSS.
Through conceptualizing a story around the two musicians who find themselves abducted to another universe, we got a very versatile production which featured designing alien artifacts, shooting forest scenes in the dark, crafting costumes, rigging camera mounts on cars and all the fun you wish for.
