VIDEO: The Vintage Caravan Give Birth To A Monster, Flee From Zombies

The Vintage Caravan’s new music video “Babylon” may start with a stale interview, but it then shifts gears and turns into a frenzied horror-themed roller coaster that sees the long-haired blues rockers flee from zombies, mermen, crazed journalists, and more. We’re pretty sure one of the guys also gives birth to a pasty-looking ghoul (no, seriously).

The song is off of their third album, ‘Arrival’, and has been one the band’s wanted to feature for quite some time now.

The video was recorded all over the metropolitan area, with bassist Alexander Örn Númason saying they almost killed a bunch of the extras during shooting.

The band specifically thanks the people of Sympatico, Rock Out With Your Cock Out, and everyone involved for enduring the harsh environments, deep water, and being pushed so hard.

Go to ROWYCO’s website for extras and behind the scenes videos.

The Vintage Caravan have sure come a long way. As they released their second album, ‘Voyage’, they graduated from support slot jockeys to headliner status, their energetic stage presence attracting swathes of young, party-hungry millennials. They went on to sign with Nuclear Blast in 2013, subsequently relocating to Denmark, and started touring internationally full time.

The Vintage Caravan at Eistnaflug by Johanna PerssonEistnaflug Friday: It’s All Fun And Games
Eistnaflug has long been the annual meeting place for Icelandic metalheads (and increasingly international ones as well), but it has also traditionally played host to a number of acts that don’t quite fit the genre. This includes local faves like Mammút, Agent Fresco, Grísalappalísa, and more. Each year, however, I hear metal fans complain that it’s not dark enough, or that they are out of place, but I couldn’t disagree more. Yes, they’re not metal, but if Eistnaflug only had such acts, it would tire the fans out, their ears would ache, and the festival couldn’t retain the same number of frequent visitors. Eistnaflug needs diversity, and that’s exactly what The Vintage Caravan bring into the fold.
