Strasbourg post hardcore band YURODIVY have teamed up with us to give the official premiere of their intriguing new music video based on a 1925 Soviet silent film directed by Sergei Eisenstein, called Battleship Potemkin. “Children Of The Sun” comes from the band’s debut LP “Aphos” that will be released on February 2nd, 2017 via Itawak Records, Dead Punx Society, DeadStallion BatallionMillion Records, Dingleberry Records, Maniyax Records, Rad Nauseam Records, WOOAAARGH and Skatepizza, and fearlessly conquering the genre of chaotic hardcore, mathcore and noisy post hardcore. The track represents forward motion for the band, which kind of decided to harness the chaos, make it a little more considered and well-glued to the core of the concept of the record. See the band lifting the curtain on the story and watch the full video below.
The title “Children Of The Sun” captures the division of a people that is facing a system settled by former generations that is now beyond their control. In this tale, it is the moment when the sun, brought on the seafloor as something positive, is dividing everyone. Using material from the Battleship Potemkin movie and linking it with the current state of our society seemed for us a good way to represent the analogy of the lyrics of this song, and, by extension, of the whole disc.

Yurodivy: Eccentric figure who is outside conventional society. His madness is ambiguous, and can be real or simulated. He is able to say truths which others cannot, as a figure not subject to earthly control or judgment. Everybody can be somebody’s fool.
