Metalcore act CREAK premiere new music video for “Hare in the Woods”

1 min read

CREAK, the Newcastle-based nu-metal and metalcore sensation, has released a brand-new music video for their song “Hare in the Woods.” The premiere is available exclusively via Metal Injection and serves as a powerful visual accompaniment to the track, which features on their debut album, “Depth Perception.”

“We feel like ‘Hare in the Woods’ is the best song to sum up CREAK as a band, and we wanted to make sure that the video matched that feeling,” said Jack Dunn, the band’s vocalist. Dunn elaborated that working with director Murry Deaves provided an opportunity to explore new artistic territories, specifically mentioning “old art-house horror influence.”

This project marks a series of firsts for the band, including their initial foray into the realm of post-production effects. “The way Deaves was able to put some of the shots together felt like a movie,” Dunn added, underscoring the cinematic quality of the new video.

The video was shot over a single day at Antwerp Mansion, an iconic location that lent an extra layer of gravitas to the proceedings. “It was a really great day for us to finish off the videos for the album,” Dunn expressed.

“Depth Perception” has received high praise since its release via Prosthetic Records. Dunn thanked fans for their overwhelming support, stating, “It really means the world to us that people have taken the time to check it out.” He also noted that the band is in the process of finalizing future shows to ensure that the album is toured as extensively as possible.

The quartet, which originally intended to craft a new EP following 2020’s “Bitter Picture,” found themselves writing an entire album due to an overflow of creative ideas. They cite influences like Yüth Forever and Sworn In, while also incorporating elements outside the genre, such as Lynchian interludes and clean vocals.

The album deals with heavy emotional themes, influenced in part by Dunn’s personal experience as he navigated the anguish accompanying his mother’s battle with cancer. “Depth Perception” is described as an anthology of dread, pain, mortality, and hope.

Produced, mixed, and mastered by Connor Sweeney, formerly of Loathe, “Depth Perception” comprises 12 tracks that delve into a rich tapestry of emotional and musical complexity.
