GOLD, the post-everything, dark rock group, have released a new video for the track Old Habits ahead of their tour with metallic hardcore pioneers, Converge
The collected footage video follows on from the critically acclaimed video for And I Know Now, which the New York Times named among the best music videos of 2015.
The band comments:
“Old Habits comes with another hyper-realistic hypnotic trip, which kind of has become our trademark for the video clips of our ‘No Image’ album. This video is a mosaic of violence, assembling the light and the darkness, the personal and the political. Humanity is better at creating new ways of violence than at banning out the old ones, enabling a dynamic narrative.”
GOLD‘s recent album No Image appeared in many musicians’ year-end lists including Converge’s Jacob Bannon.
GOLD will join Converge and US hardcore punk outfit, Harm’s Way on a five-day jaunt through Spain, France, Germany and Switzerland.
Regarding the tour, the band added:
“This is sure to be interesting! Such a diverse line-up offering outlets for a variety of emotions and energy. We expect that 95% of the attendees have never heard of GOLD before. If they bring their open minds, this could be a feast for all.”

GOLD was initially conceived in 2011 by guitarist Thomas Sciarone (ex-The Devil’s Blood) and vocalist Milena Eva. Their mission statement was to play a distinct form of heavy rock as a monument to civilization’s decline. With a vocalist named after Franz Kafka’s lover, it may come as no surprise that GOLD‘s unique output deals with solitude, love and absence of prospect.
Their debut album Interbellum showed the promise from this unique band through its many riffs, hooks, and most notably, Milena’s unique and distinct vocal delivery. Now three years after their debut, GOLD return with No Image an album that goes much beyond the promise laid down with Interbellum.
Recorded and mixed by Jeff Zeigler (Kurt Vile, The War On Drugs, Nothing) and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (Yob, Bell Witch, Sunn 0)), Leviathan etc), No Image is the sound of a band truly finding their feet, a group of individuals who are not afraid to take responsibility for their own place on this earth, and above all, to question everything that is put in front of them.
No Image is out now via Ván Records – available to order HERE (via Profound Lore in North America).
