Guitarist Tim Henson: “Our new track “Nightmare” is the first 8-string piece we’ve written. The video tells the story of a ballerina practicing for perfection. Her deranged instructor appears only to make her do it over and over again. She keeps practicing the routine until her feet bleed, and she throws up blood. At the end, she thinks she finally got it perfect, but her instructor has had enough and decides to strangle her out of nowhere. As soon as he makes contact with her, she wakes up to realize that she was only having a nightmare.”
