Hacktivist Go Low Budget For 'Hate' Video


(TeamRock Radio) Hacktivist have released a video for their track Hate. The song is taken from the Milton Keynes band's debut album Outside The Box, which was released earlier this year.

The video was filmed by bassist Josh Gurner on a budget "of almost 10." It features the band members on their lunch breaks from their day jobs, giving a glimpse into their everyday lives.

Gurner says: "Lyrically, Hate deals with the phenomenon of the simmering jealousy that manifests itself as online bile when people see what they perceive as a glimpse of 'success.'

"I wanted to address that in the video, and also add a twist on the idea that we're living in an age where people seem to get the majority of their entertainment from a stylised version of 'reality', and even the most low-level 'famous' person exists publicly as a idealised version of themselves."

He adds: "The video shows a day-in-the-life of the members of Hacktivist, and highlights the duality of our lives as the touring musicians that people see on a stage, in a video or on an album cover, and the more mundane 'real' lives that make up the majority of most band members' time."
