HELLOWEEN release 3D road movie video For 'Best Time' with ALISSA WHITE-GLUZ
HELLOWEEN releases a video for “Best Time”. Written by Sascha Gerstner and Andi Deris, the sunny hymn propagates hope and optimism: “Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery / I will have the best time of my life / Yes, I know I’m gonna be alright / I’m feeling better in the neon light…” Directed by Martin Häusler, who previously handled the band’s “Skyfall” video, “Best Time” is a 3D road movie that includes live clips of the band as well as a cameo appearance by ARCH ENEMY vocalist Alissa White-Gluz.
Watch “Best Time” below.
White-Gluz comments: “After playing multiple festivals and touring extensively in South America together a few years back, HELLOWEEN and I decided to make a fun video to reminisce about the good times while simultaneously planning for many more!”
Sascha Gerstner elaborates: “I had an ’80s neo-noir vibe in my head. The riff originally was a synth riff, which we arranged for guitars later. The wording ‘I will have the best time of my life’ was pretty spontaneous because I had this strong feeling to leave the past behind and to seize the day! Andi instantly loved the idea as well as the refrain and together we created the track as it is now!
HELLOWEEN‘s “Best Time” vinyl single was released on May 20 via Atomic Fire. Limited to 2000 copies, the record features terrific ’80s retro artwork by cartoonist and HELLOWEEN fan Marcos Moura and is available in three color variants. Besides the title track “Best Time”, fans get an alternative, exclusive vocal mix directly from the desk of HELLOWEEN‘s longtime producer Charlie Bauerfeind.
The cover artwork for “Helloween” was painted by artist Eliran Kantor, who has previously worked with HATEBREED, SOULFLY, TESTAMENT, ICED EARTH and SODOM, among others.
The “Pumpkins United” lineup features returning singer Michael Kiske and guitarist/vocalist Kai Hansen alongside frontman Andi Deris, guitarists Michael Weikath and Sascha Gerstner, bassist Markus Grosskopf and drummer Daniel Löble.
