Premiere: The Belligerents break out the green screen for Sorry To Say clip
The band officially start looking into the future in their debut record's final video clip.
Following on from the release of their debut album Science Fiction this time last year (literally today last year the album was released), Brisbane psych-rock crew The Belligerents have become one of Australia's favourites, playing a heap of huge shows and festival slots (including some still to come) as they bring their debut to the masses. However, as great as the album and their energetic live shows are, one of the best things about the Science Fiction album cycle have been The Belligerents' entertaining-as-hell video clips, something they're capping off with their last venture before they dive into album number two - the official video clip to Sorry To Say. It's a marvellous green screen affair that throws the band into outer space, and according to director Joe Agius (The Creases, Hatchie), it was a ripper of a time: "We shot this ourselves very DIY inside Brisbane venue The Brightside with a green screen, fishing like, a hair dryer and some rented astronaut costumes," he says. "We mostly made things up as we went along and it turned out being some of the most fun I've ever had making a video clip."
Although it may be the album's final video clip, Sorry To Say's video was actually shot before the first single even came out, and by ending the album cycle with the clip's long-awaited release, it sort of acts as a 'come full circle' moment for the band. "Out of all the film clips we've made, this was the most enjoyable," says Belligerents guitarist Jim Griffin. "We all got caught up in space & time. Konstantin enjoyed his pizza as much as we loved working with our friend Joe again. Sorry To Say is the first song off our album and so it feels kinda poetic that we release this as our final visual accompaniment to Science Fiction. Hope you have some fun with it."
