EXCLUSIVE: Evidence Of A Struggle ‘Bassakards’ Video Premiere

God Is In the TV can exclusively show the video for Evidence Of A Struggle‘s video for ‘Bassakards.’

It’s taken from the self-titled debut, which is out now. Evidence Of A Struggle is multi-instrumentalist William P C Simmons V aka Rev. Billy Simmons. Evidence of a Struggle creates lush, cinematic, beautiful and sometimes chaotic compositions. Launched in 2020 during lockdowns, this ambitious effort sees Rev. Billy play every instrument – guitar, drums, piano, synth and violin – recorded and engineered from his home studio, The Glue Factory. Once Covid restrictions were lifted, renowned sound engineer Sanford Parker, who has worked with the likes of Voivod, Eyehategod, and Darkthrone, helped produce, record and master the final versions of these songs.

Speaking about the video, directed by John Airo, Rev. Billy explains: ‘Bassakards is a song about longing and loss. There are so many counterpoints within this song, both sonically, visually, and emotionally. They are all parallel, similar, contrary, and oblique. Listen, look, let the sound speak its truth to you, let the animation challenge what you think about the story the sound is telling, and let the visuals challenge your beliefs. Let it move you to move forward, not bassakards.’
