Pteroglyph Unleash New Video ‘Deceit Of Choice’
23rd June 2017 sees the release of the latest offering from Leeds based Pteroglyph, Death Of A Prince, and having already released 2 singles with accompanying videos, today the band unleash a third. “‘Deceit Of Choice’ was one of the first tracks written for the album and has been a regular in the bands live set for a short while,” comments band leader Jimmy MacGregor. “I wrote about my own view of what I feel the government and big media represents… which to me is lies and manipulation. Which unfortunately feels very relevant in society right now. The main themes for the track are based around the frustration and apparent futility of trying to make a change in society, in that any decisions made for the many are often dictated by the few and you are at the mercy of those in power. It’s my own take of a pissed off punk song!”
Filmed during the band’s set at Bloodstock 2016 to a packed out tent ‘Deceit of Choice’ represents the energy and angry vibe of the track whilst displaying the chaos you’d expect from a typical Pteroglyph live show!
Founded in 2012 in Leeds, in the northern English county of Yorkshire Jimmy craved something to channel his musical and artistic works into and so, Pteroglyph (pronounced “terroh gliff”) was born. Inspired by his own journey through life and musical greats the likes of Devin Townsend, Sylosis and Gojira Jimmy set out to create interesting and heavy music, devoid of boundaries making for complex arrangements and patterns one would associate with progressive music.
The album was recorded by Jimmy himself at his home studio before being mastered by Acle Kahney from Tesseract. Artwork (as seen above) was done by Adrian Baxter.
