[WATCH] Astari Nite // "Unfulfilled Promise"

Astari Nite is proud to show to the world their video for the song “Unfulfilled Promise." The track, is included in the band’s most recent album 'Midnight Conversations' album on Cleopatra Records.  and produced by Tom Shear (Assemblage 23). 

The video, directed by Ileana Escalante & Louis Molden of Blind Beast, features Astari Nite’s trademark aesthetic, haunting and melancholic, blended with surrealistic scenarios that tap into the psyche of someone who is confronting their demons, and dealing with the aftermath of loss and death. 

"Sadness and depression comes in many shades and colors. If you can see it, stop and take the time to help. Smiling at someone, or a simple hello, can save a life." 


The video, and the message it contains, comes at a time when the social spotlight is on the topics of depression and suicide, with several beloved musicians and iconic performers having taken their own lives in the last couple of years, it brings to light how many of the people we know and love in our daily lives deal with the despair that drives one to become destructive. Too often do we become aware after it is too late, after they are gone.

December 7th - Dance Macabre Festival: Gothic Rock Edition, Hannover, Germany
