Egypt Central Chase the 'White Rabbit' -- Exclusive Video
To make their 2008 self-titled album a success, the Memphis, Tenn.-based Egypt Central hit the touring circuit hard, playing with everyone from Disturbed to Nonpoint. The group got a big boost in visibility when their songs 'Taking You Down' and 'You Make Me Sick' appeared in the popular 'WWE Smackdown vs. Raw 2009' video game.
Last October, Egypt Central entered the studio with producer Skidd Mills (Saving Abel, 12 Stones) to work on 'White Rabbit,' the post-grunge act's second album. The band filmed a video for the title track of the record, and today Noisecreep has exclusive video footage from the shoot.
Bassist Joey Chicago offered Noisecreep some insight on the song itself:
"'White Rabbit,' as a song, is about the act of being within the struggle, the lesson that is trusting someone or something that is not what it seems. We wanted to write a song that people could relate to because we were being honest and showing our vulnerability. The song bridges the gap between the self-titled first record and the new album. The metaphor dives deeper in the video as we are introduced the characters directly correlating with the record. It's the beginning of the tale of four men determined to get their lives back from the people or things that have influenced and damaged them in such a negative way. It is the first of a series of videos showing the war between purity and deception, determination and distraction, Egypt Central and the White Rabbit."
'White Rabbit' will be out on May 17th via Fat Lady Music/ILG. Pre-order it here.
