News : Contrive unveil “Connect-Dead” music video

By on August 18, 2017

Melbourne’s Contrive, consisting of twin brothers Paul and Andrew Haug have unveiled their debut music video “Connect-dead” to coincide with their brand new album, Slow Dissolve, due for release on September 1st.

The music video was directed by David Hunter at Band Factory. Watch the full music video below.

Slow Dissolve will be available in limited edition digipak CD and digital download. Pre-orders are available now. Click here to secure your copy.

Slow Dissolve was produced by Paul and Andrew Haug and mixed by Mike and Dave Young of Young Bros. Productions in Vancouver Canada B.C. Dave is also the guitarist for the Devin Townsend Project.

Re-energised, re-invigorated, re-born; Contrive has been honed into a razor sharp two-piece metal machine.

The twin brothers are two parts of the one whole, finishing each others musical thoughts like no one else can. The result is a potent collection of intuitive, progressive, heavy metal;

Modern production and a liberal dose of electronic effects meet some old school metal crunch via surging riffs and punishing drums.

Lyricallythe album is a loose concept about the varying options we all now have to communicate with each other but also creating a catch 22 that the digital age is also turning many people away from real connection or creating a fear anxiety of it.

Contrive have had a very prolific career, sharing stages with the likes of Opeth, Stone Sour, Sepultura, Soilwork, Machine Head, Testament, Cavalera Conspiracy, Coroner and more.

They have had their previous albums shaped by the hands of Devin Townsend and Fredrik Nordstrom.

Internationally they opened for Parkway Drive in Bangkok and were the first Australian band to ever play in Vietnam, resulting in them selling out the 800 seat Hard Rock Cafe in Ho Chi Minh City.

Known and well respected throughout the global metal community, Paul and Andrew have always done it their way. On their own, independently and for each other as well as themselves.

With Slow Dissolve, the brothers Haug truly are taking on the world together. Literally side by side.
