The spectacular video provides viewers a nearer glimpse at the volcanic eruption in advance of pulling back again to show the singer enjoying at a safe and sound distance from the spectacular backdrop of Falgradalsfjall. The general performance was captured very last month within just times of the start off of the volcanic eruption. This marks the 1st time the volcano has distribute its molten lava in just about 800 yrs.

The vocalist says of the experience, “It was an wonderful and surreal experience to film and document this video clip in entrance of the stay eruption.

Past yr, whilst endorsing the Surface Seems guide one “Crack My Newborn,” Julius Son and his bandmates shot a overall performance movie (also viewed down below) at the majestic Þridrangar lighthouse, located atop a distant rock development in the North Atlantic Ocean, numerous miles off the Iceland’s southern coast.
