When Your World is Up in Flames

Looks like it’s been awhile since we updated this site. A lot has happened. Bridget is doing fine and is very busy in school. And my band is doing pretty well. We just released our first video, Up in Flames. Click on the image below to hear it:

A lot of changes

We’ve had a lot of changes. Astral Eyes actually disbanded in late 2014 and came back to life earlier this year. Lots of drama I won’t get into.

For those of you who have been following the band for quite some time, we’re no longer a female fronted band. Skitz joined earlier this year and was immediately thrust into the studio. We’re also a twin lead guitar band now instead of just me doing the leads.

We also have our first album out. You should give it a listen. Up in Flames is our first single. It came out 10/31/2015 and we’re already getting decent sales.

Up in Flames video

The video itself was a blast to make. We shot it between Chico and Paradise in Northern California. Here are a few screenshots to show how beautiful the locations they chose were:

The song is about a girl who is to be sacrificed to a dragon and instead, the dragon falls in love with her and is giving her the choice to turn on her enemies. The original video was to be animated, but the record company was against it. They said it needs to feature the band, especially since it’s our first ever video. I guess looking back it makes sense. The animation had a little twist where the girl was actually a witch and she cast a spell to make the dragon fall in love with her.

So instead, you see a live action video. We do like it, so no regrets. We did get rained on a lot. California’s going through a drought and of course, when we go to shoot a video, we get rained on.

Anyways, if you haven’t seen it yet, check it out.
