British metal band The More I See film first music video on Star Wars set

British metallers TMIS (The More I See) are due to release their first ever music video on Monday, which was filmed on the set of the legendary Star Wars movies in Northern Africa.

TMIS drove for six hours across the Tunisian desert to shoot the video for their track, The Eye That Offends, performing at three iconic sets from the hugely popular movies – remarkably still standing years after being abandoned, preserved in the arid desert heat.  The result is a visually stunning spectacle that perfectly compliments the band’s energetic performance. TMIS frontman James Cluer comments:

I’m a massive fan of Star Wars, so to visit Tunisia and film at some of the greatest film locations ever was really special.  It was such an incredible experience to perform at the mighty canyons of the Jundland Wastes (Episode IV: A New Hope), where Luke Skywalker and the droids R2-D2 and C-3PO first meet Obi-Wan Kenobi, as well as the city of Mos Espa (Episode I: The Phantom Menace), and especially Luke Skywalker‘s home – Lars homestead (Episode IV: A New Hope).  It was a childhood dream of mine to see the igloo, and to get to film there with the sun setting behind us was something I’ll never forget!

The video for The Eye That Offends was filmed with director Phil Berridge of Creative Junkie Media and is due to premiere on Vevo on July 15th.  To coincide with the release of the video, TMIS will also be releasing a three-track EP exclusively on Spotify.  Look out for the EP and video this coming Monday.

The Eye That Offends is taken from The More I See‘s new studio album, The Disappearing Humans, which is due to be released on 26th August in Europe on Earache Records, and on 1st October in the USA via Century Media/Earache Records.  The Disappearing Humans was mixed by producer Scott Atkins (Sylosis, Behemoth, Savage Messiah) and mastered at the world-famous Abbey Road Studios with Steve Rooke (The Beatles).
