Roll The Dice - Assembly video
Published 22 May 2014 by DM

Watch the breathtaking new video for ‘Assembly’ by Roll The Dice. The Norwegian archipelago of Svalbard matches blow for blow, the scale and beauty of this epic centrepiece from new album Until Silence. Footage from the Russian settlements at Barentsburg and Colesbukta and a tense full-blooded orchestral build suggest political tensions in a world thirsting for oil. There are helicopters, snowmobiles and polar bears. Pretty much all you could ever want from a music video! The film was directed by visual collaborators Frode & Marcus. Self-Titled ran a premiere of the video earlier today.

Watch on Vimeo.

Until Silence is released 2nd June and can be pre-ordered from the Roll The Dice Bandcamp or the Leaf shop.
