French retro-influenced metallers BlackRain released their full-length UDR Music offering, Released, earlier this year. Today, BlackRain is revealing an animal activism music video for the album track "Run Tiger Run", which voices the band's concerns about the poaching industry and animal rights as a whole.
Joining them in the music video is famed French comedian Remi Gaillard, who rose to superstardom as a viral YouTube personality (nearly six million subscribers). Also an outspoken animal activist, Gaillard portrays a tiger being hunted in the woods, running for his life. He is eventually rescued by fellow guest star Gilles Lartigot.
The "Run Tiger Run" video was directed by Enguerran Prieu and based on an original idea from De La Roche.
Released was recorded at Spitfire Studios in the Hollywood Hills with Aerosmith sound engineer Warren Huart and producer Jack Douglas (Aerosmith, Cheap Trick, Alice Cooper, The New York Dolls, John Lennon). You can order your copy of Released via iTunes and Amazon.
