New York hip-hop trio Blestenation has released their video for the track "Seed Of Memory" online at www.youtube.com/watch?v=PySY6kfhwCg . Blestenation is currently gearing up for the release of their debut album, "MBugout City", on February 23rd, 2010 through Suburban Noize Records.
"Clay Patrick McBride directed this video and shot it on some old Super 8 cameras that he likes to use. He jacked the idea from that old Bob Dylan video but we put our own twist on it," commented FAF. "I remember when I did the shot where I was holding up the burning sign, Werdplay was flipping out because he thought my beard was gonna catch on fire and you know if that happened I would have lost some of my wizard skills. Luckily that catastrophe was averted."
"It was freezing that day," added Werdplay. "We knew what needed to be done though, and I feel like the fact that we were freezing gave the video an element of truth that wouldn't have been there had we done anything else."
Blestenation was once described by Interscope’s Jimmy Iovine as, "The most promising group I have signed since Nine Inch Nails", but was deemed too explicit for the major label world after the group’s drug addiction and day-to-day insanity derailed their career. The group was previously signed to Geffen Records before their reckless behavior got them kicked off of Warped Tour, into fist fights inside the Sony Music offices, and kicked out of the Teen Choice Awards after an altercation with American Idol's Ryan Seacrest.
