As I Lay Dying are premiering a new music video for their take on the Judas Priest classic 'Electric Eye' which you can see below. The song appears on the recently released EP, 'Decas', which marks the band's 10 year anniversary.
The clip was shot with director Paul Brown (My Chemical Romance, Staind, Stone Sour) at El Mirage Lake, a dry lake bed in the Mojave Desert of San Bernardino County, California.
"After a long day of sunburns and drought out in the desert I'm glad to be done fighting scorpions for the filming of Electric Eye. We came out victorious, but we probably couldn't have done it without the classic Metal inspiration of Halford and Priest's legendary guitar melodies," explains frontman Tim Lambesis.
