Gearing up to open the main stage at this weekend’s Sonisphere Festival at Knebworth House (headlined by THE PRODIGY, IRON MAIDEN & METALLICA), London metallers THE DEFILED have released the video for their latest single ‘Infected’.
Featuring stunning 3D animation from the London based Smoke And Guns Productions, the video tells a twisted tale of epidemic infection, while the band rock out in a fire and stripper filled morgue.
“We’ve done performance videos, we’ve tried our hand at acting, and our last video did not even have us in it, so we wanted to try something different this time” says frontman Stitch D. “With animation, anything is possible – if we want a helicopter, no problem, if we want a massive machine gun mounted on a jeep, ditto. It might be nice to have real strippers and pyro but for now this does the job nicely.”
“Fuck yeah!” echoes The AvD. “Suicide, murder, disease, fire, helicopters, machine guns, strippers and lego – this has got it all.”
The video is also the last to feature guitarist Aaron Curse, who, as the clip shows, is sadly no longer of this world. The Avd says: “We are sad to see him go, but you can’t fuck with fate. He is probably down there in hell right now, creeping out Satan and his minions. He will be missed.”

THE DEFILED open the main stage of Sonisphere Festival Friday 4th July 2014, their first show as a four piece.
