Satanic Planet have premiered the video for the latest single, “Devil In Me (feat. Nomi Abadi)”, off their self titled album out now on Three One G.
The video stars Autumn Best (CW’s upcoming The 4400 reboot) and Jeremy Radin (The Way Back), was lensed by Devin Schiro, and was written, directed and edited by Lola Blanc.
Blanc explained how she got involved: “I watched the documentary Hail, Satan? on Hulu and was immediately intrigued by The Satanic Temple, their co-founder Lucien Greaves, and the work they do, so I asked Lucien to come on my podcast. While we were interviewing him, I found out his band Satanic Planet (comprised of Greaves, Luke Henshaw, The Locust’s Justin Pearson and Slayer’s Dave Lombardo) had an album coming out, I *ever so casually* dropped my strong interest in doing a video for them, and here we are!” Blanc felt drawn to this track in particular. “I specifically requested the song ‘Devil in Me’ because it immediately evoked the feeling of an exorcism. The horrors that can happen when religion is taken to the extreme was a theme we were clearly very aligned on, so it just felt like a perfect fit.”
Satanic Planet teamed up with Lola Blanc and Liz Maupin to create a short film based on the band’s song, “Devil In Me” , which will be part of L.A. Shorts International Film Festival, an Oscar-qualifying film festival in Los Angeles, CA. The festival is running online through the month of July, with more details to come.
As we’ve previously stated, this band, album have checked almost every box to make sure the pearl clutchers hold tight to their jewels, from the band name to the band members to the song titles and lyrics and themes and artwork and hidden satanic messages. The only thing that looks to be missing is children. Children laughing. Children singing. As we said before regarding this Satanic Planet release or any other: We believe it will be interesting if we have evolved into a place where we could sit down and enjoy this (or any) album in a family setting (your children included, no one excluded) without being held back by some sort of religious guilt. We wholeheartedly believe that there are still people, families that are bound by this cloud of religious fear that will look and use this band as a scapegoat. Hopefully their children will find the album or maybe the music will find them.
