ERIC13 (guitarist of Combichrist, singer of Sex Slaves) has released the official musicfor his new solo single, “Devil’s Highway,” and it absolutely rocks. If True Blood weren’t finished, I’d say it might be a perfect track for that… then again, it might totally be appropriate for .
“Devil’s Highway” was filmed on the back roads connecting Philadelphia to the New Jersey shore, was self-directed and filmed by ERIC13 and edited by Eric Bower. The single itself features Ashley Dzerigian (Filter, Ceelo Green, Adam Lambert) on bass and Chris Reeve (Filter, session work for Combichrist) on drums.
ERIC13 commented on the track and video:
After writing about 50and outlaw country songs in the last few years, I was yearning for new inspiration. I had experienced so much change in my life, and for better or worse, I looked in the mirror to face things about myself I hadn’t previously been willing to face. My new songs finally address those demons and intensely personal situations and I’ve never felt stronger or more confident with my songwriting. ‘Devil’s Highway’ marks the beginning of a new era in my music, and this video a desire to develop the stories even more.
Making this video was an absolute blast. I love to create new characters, dive into fantasy worlds and craft elaborate back stories. So once I found “THE SPOT”, where I did the majority of the filming, (the dilapidated house and ‘path to nowhere’) the story and scenes revealed themselves. With every shot I was uncovering this swampy underworld where I could simultaneously bury my secrets and dig up the truth.
