(Hed)p.e. Premiere “It’s All Over” Video
Rockers (Hed)p.e. released their the album Truth Rising (Suburban Noize) last year. Now they’ve released an eye-popping stop-motion animation video for the disc’s “It’s All Over.” Vocalist Jared Gomes fills us in on the song below, and below that, check out the group’s tour dates.
REVOLVER What’s the song “It’s All Over” about?
JARED GOMES It’s about the end of one age and the beginning of another. About the end of corporate fascism and the beginning of something better. The end of the Illuminati and the beginning of the new age. The end of a society that is engineered to serve the few, and the beginning of a world that is engineered to serve the many. About fucking time.
Which part of it did you come up with first? And what was the inspiration?
The vocals were written to the music. I was cruising, listening to this track and wrote the vocals while I was driving. I do that a lot. Sometimes it works out, sometimes it doesn’t. Although it takes me a minute to figure out how to say something that doesn’t sound too corny, I’m never at a loss for words, because I’ve always got too much on my mind. The inspiration was my perspective on the ever-evolving reality. I spend much of my time reading, studying and contemplating the world structure and where its heading, because, “it’s all over.” Everything. Organized religion, the current financial system, it’s all ending.
How did you come up with the idea behind the video?
The video concept was developed solely by the creator and director, Joey Nugent, and the band had nothing to do with that. Joey came up with his own visual experience and we thank him for that. Joey has done every video from this album. Doing your own videos is more of the same old shit. I enjoy letting someone else do it and be creative with it for a change.
Who did all the stop-motion animation?
Joey did all the work. All we had to do was enjoy the final product. Which is nice, because videos are rarely fun to make anyway. I always find myself at a video shoot wishing I was somewhere else.
What sort of feedback have you gotten on this song so far?
It’s been all positive feedback for this track. I must admit, the entire Truth Rising album was well received. It was kind of straight-up hardcore compared to past (Hed)p.e. albums, where we might take the sound into leftfield. This track in particular is sweet, because it combines hardcore with melodic vocals, very heavy riffs, and kick-drum techniques. It’s just a likeable track for sure.
