The Black Ryder shares New video

The Black Ryder share their new video for "Let Me Be Your Light"

The Black Ryder have shared their new video for the track “Let Me Be Your Light,” off of their latest album The Door Behind The Door. From Juan Azulay, video director: “the video focuses on the theme of survival and genetic memory. One character travels across mountains of time to pull another from a state of suspension, beautiful and addictive ~ yet ultimately destructive. The black vultures tell us that such state of abstraction foreshadows a nearby end of cycle. The birds point to the vitality and chaos created by the gene of survival encoded into the natural world. Our characters have suppressed it and instead carry it around, like dead weight against vast landscapes of time.”

“Let Me Be Your Light” was written and conceived by Juan Azulay and The Black Ryder and it was shot with NY-based often collaborating cinematographer Katelin Arizmendi. It was shot on location in California, Nevada and Florida.

The Black Ryder plays NYC tonight at the Mercury Lounge (8pm set time) and then heads to the UK for a string of shows. The band will head back to the US to open for The Jesus and Mary Chain on their North American Psychocandy tour, which also makes a stop at Levitation / Austin Psych Fest.
