The Eternal release new video clip for ‘Don’t Believe Anymore’ Australian progressive doom metal band The Eternal have released a new music video for the song ’Don’t Believe Anymore’ from their critically acclaimed album ‘Waiting For The Endless Dawn’. ‘Don’t Believe Anymore’ was originally recorded by Australian band Icehouse on their 1984 album ‘Sidewalk’. On why The Eternal chose this song to be the bands first recorded cover song, Singer / Guitarist Mark Kelson elaborates: ‘Icehouse and frontman Iva Davies are firmly cemented in Australian music history and are a huge part of the sound of Australian music in the 80’s. I felt this song would sit so well amongst our other material and would also be a homage to our Australian heritage. I think this can bring to a wider audience, that Australians have been making dark and emotive music for a very long time’. The video for ‘Don’t Believe Anymore’ has been beautifully put together by long time collaborators Red Tape Pictures in Brisbane, Australia and can now be viewed on the Inverse Records Youtube channel. The album has been receiving rave reviews internationally and also finished in several ’Top 10 albums of 2018’ lists on major metal sites around the world. ‘Waiting For The Endless Dawn’ is now available on all major online services such as Spotify, iTunes & Apple Music through Inverse Records.
