Promises by Vision Video

Darkenin Heart

Gothic post-punk quartet Vision Video return today with their latest single, Promises, from their anticipated sophomore album, Haunted Hours which will be out October 11th, 2022. In this one, songwriter, guitarist and vocalist Dusty Gannon, who served one tour of Afghanistan in the U.S. Army, comes up with a strong political statement.

Gannon calls the track “a bitter and angry track about the state of affairs in the United States. I wanted to conjure up imagery of the religious oligarchy that our government is becoming.”

The band produces a rather notable number that sticks out, with its Gothic-bent post punk core augmented with a serious message.

“I was thinking a lot about the disconnect between the religious who often preach acceptance and unconditional love, and how there was so much hatred and contempt for people protesting for things like the BLM movement. It seemed very distorted and incongruous to me. I feel like the past several years has given rise to a very vocal and politically motivated evangelical christian enclave that is rising in visibility. This song is sort of a character examination of that mindset.”
