Poets of the Fall Releases My Dark Disquiet Music Video

Yesterday, Poets of the Fall released a brand new music video from their album, Ultraviolet.

The music video is for their song, My Dark Disquiet, and believe me, you've never seen a Poets video like this before.

The video was created just weeks following Control's launch, in which the song featured prominently with its own dedicated room in the FBC basement. While there are several references to the game in the music video, in the form of the suit, the red hotline, and the black pyramid earrings, it is certainly its own entity and approachable even if you haven't played the title.

The piece was broadcast on YouTube on September 30th at 10am EEST, with Marko Saaresto (Vocals), Jani Snellman (bass), Mikka Hakala (Director) and Tiia Öhman (Photographer) joining the chat to talk to viewers as it premiered on the channel.

A little about the crew behind the piece: The music video was based on a story by Marko Saaresto and Miika Hakala, the latter also being the video's director, cinematographer and editor. Graphics and sound design were by Markus "Captain" Kaarlonen". Make-up was by Iida Savimäki and costumes by Kupla erikoisompelimo. The location manager and still photography was by Tiia Öhman, and the Gaffer was Henri Ilanen. Starring in the video alongside the band were Johanna Ruonala and Katri Swan. Providing light and grip gear were Studiovarustamo and G-Studio.

The latest music video was recorded at Konepajan Bruno, a flea market and venue situated in Alppila.

My Dark Disquiet, along with the Instrumental, Radio Edit, and Tim Skold Remix, is now available to buy via Amazon, iTunes, and Google Play, or streamed on Spotify or YouTube.

A bit of information about the band's history: Poets of the Fall has had a long history with Remedy, which officially started back in 2003 with Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne. For the game, POTF created their first song, Late Goodbye based on a poem by Sam Lake. Later, the band returned for Alan Wake, creating the custom songs The Poet and the Muse and Children of the Elder God. Their song War, from their album, Twilight Theater, also made an appearance in the game. Their latest project with the developers has been with Alan Wake's American Nightmare. Balance Slays the Demon was created specifically for the title, and The Happy Song (which also appeared in the album Temple of Thought) also appeared in the game. The song Labyrinth from their Clearview album was inspired by Quantum Break. 

After seven years, the band once again join forces with the studio to create something special for Control; their song My Dark Disquiet from the album Ultraviolet appeared in the game, as did a commissioned song entitled Take Control.
