The Black Ryder shares new short film

The Black Ryder shares new short film for their track "Seventh Moon" from their forthcoming album The Door Behind The Door

Today The Black Ryder shares “Seventh Moon” — the first film from the band’s forthcoming album, The Door Behind The Door, which takes us into a waking dream, a world between worlds.

“We wanted to create a visual accompaniment that would stir the viewer’s imagination as well as compliment the atmosphere of our music. Moving through a space between the veils, an ethereal dreamscape unfolds, a door behind a door.” -Aimee Nash

The Black Ryder began writing the songs that would appear on The Door Behind The Door not long after finishing their acclaimed debut Buy The Ticket, Take The Ride in 2009. Engineered by Von Ryper and produced by he and Nash, The Door Behind The Door began to take shape soon after the band left Australia to tour America in 2010.

Says vocalist / songwriter Aimee Nash “Since releasing our first record we left Australia, toured America, relocated to Los Angeles, all the while trying to find our feet & get somewhat settled enough to write & produce this record. It also took some time to find the right scenario for releasing our music as well.”

“We wanted to create music that was layered, emotive & majestic,” says Nash. “You open one door, and you find there’s another, you keep moving through each door to the next not quite sure where you’re going or what to expect, but there’s something enticing & reassuring you that you’re moving in the right direction.” “The final track listing order was very deliberate, each track would morph into something completely different,” adds Von Ryper. “The whole idea is that it is a journey where, as a track finishes, one door might lead to ascension, whereas another may be a descent.”

Due to the deeply personal nature of The Door Behind The Door’s creation, Nash and Von Ryper are taking the reins for its release, putting it out worldwide on the band’s own imprint The Anti-Machine Machine in conjunction with The Orchard. After working with EMI Music Australia and Mexican Summer to release Buy The Ticket…, the duo decided to self-produce and release The Door Behind The Door in an effort to preserve the album’s uncompromised genesis. “We have a very specific vision for what it is we want to do here,” Nash says. “We had to keep moving & creating & evolving until we found the right fit as we saw & heard it. From the music production to the artwork & imagery, to wanting to release this on our own label, to the live performance.”

“We’ve been hands on in all facets of making & releasing our music. This approach may have taken more time to get to this point where we are finally releasing our music, but as the pieces are falling into place it’s quite a wonderful feeling knowing that our imaginations have brought us here to now with an album that we’re both proud of.”
