Band comments:”The samples used in the song are from the film version of George Orwell‘s novel 1984, directed by Michael Radford, along with Francis Ford Coppola‘s movie Apocalypse now.
WANT and its video explores the threat of becoming hollow, a thing that is threatening to all human beings, and how to avoid this threat. The video attempts to represent the lines of T.S.Eliot‘s poem Hollow Men through the images of a metaphorical journey as displayed in Apocalypse now, the hollow created by violence in the pictures of 1984, along with loneliness, hopelessness and emptiness portrayed by independent and amateur (nevertheless brillliant) sources of film footage.”
The lyric video was created by Gerő András Péter (Kill Monday Management), the background video used was done by the band, while the album artwork was created by Antal Miklós Tod.
The band’s album titled Shape Without Form was released on 3rd March 2020 by the finnish label Inverse Records. After the album’s release the band had its first change in membership, drummer Laszlo Papp was replaced by Zoltan Cseros (Zoma).
