Estonian industrial rock band EVESTUS is proud to announce the video release of their TEARS FOR FEARS cover, “MAD WORLD.” Additional guitars were recorded by Matthew Setzer (Skinny Puppy, London After Midnight, Kanga etc).
Like a twisted lovechild of Trent Reznor and Al Jourgensen, producer and frontman OTT EVESTUS’ blending of bouncing rock sound with future-noir synths and distorted vocals hits you like a bag of bricks.
“I believe this song unites a lot of people who don’t fit into this world.. And a lot of these people are among our audience so it really happened quite naturally I think. At some point we just started playing it live and now finally it found a home on our latest EP, POST 18 DEPRESSION.” – Evestus
For fans of: Marilyn Manson & The Prodigy
The video for “Mad World” is directed, filmed and edited by Grete “Stitch” Laus – the artist and director behind all of Evestus videos to date. She ordered the band to play through this song after they’ve just spent 30 hours on the set of “Welcome To My World” music video. She felt that the group was emotionally in the right place for “Mad World” so she took advantage of that even though this song was not even planned to be released at that time.
EVESTUS is both an electro-industrial rock band from Estonia, and the name of the band’s founding member and frontman.
Having toured with the likes of MINISTRY, YOUTH CODE and HOCICO, aside from numerous headlining tours, EVESTUS has already reached the fans of industrial music in Europe, Russia and UK.
Currently a four-piece, the band is hot off their recent release Post 18 Depression. Currently, the band is working on their next album with producerADE FENTON, best known for his work on GARY NUMAN albums “Splinter”,“Savage”, etc. The new album “All Goes Black” is due to be released this autumn.
