Astari Nite Shares New Goth single “As If You Were Dead”
Astari Nite has delivered their latest track “As If You Were Dead” along with a mesmerizing music video. The new goth single is the first to be released from their forthcoming EP, due out February 2020 via Danse Macabre Records. Astari Nite are connoisseurs of the genre, staying true to their stylistic praxis. They have created a moving and thought-provoking visual counterpart for “As If You Were Dead”. Communicating the mournful and complex subject matter of the song, the emotive video directed by Ileana Escalante & Louis Molden (Blind Beast), oozes with poetic imagery as hazy, smokey, black and white shots fill the screen. Perhaps one of the most heart-wrenching tracks yet, “As If You were dead” meditates on what it means to lose someone.
“Knowing that you can never speak to someone ever again is the hardest part when dealing with death. Never hearing that person speak or seeing them smile in front of you again, sure makes for a gloomy day. Nevertheless, one can only mourn for so long. In time, happiness will come in waves yet again and the memories just might stay a bit longer.” – Mychael
The new goth single is now available on all major streaming platforms. Jason Corbett, Jackknife Sounds owner and Actors frontman, mastered the track. The band teamed up with Anastasia Gwyn Judd for limited edition “As If You Were Dead” t-shirts that are now available on Bandcamp.
