Los Angeles, CA’s progressive rock/metal rising stars Sifting have just released a new music video for their epic power-ballad track “Gloom” which is the fifth music video from their latest full-length album Not From Here. The video was directed by Alejandro Fumero Gil, and filmed in beautiful Santa Monica Mountains in Malibu, CA and Santa Clarita, CA.

“This is probably the most personal song I have ever written” says frontman Eduardo Gil. “In this song I describe what I felt the day of the plane crash that took my mother’s life, which I suppressed in my mind for so many years. I just didn’t want to feel what I felt that day ever again… but acceptance is part of the healing and the evolution of every human being. I struggled with myself for many days bringing myself to sit down and write about it. Then one day I finally got the courage to do it. Once I started writing, it was like it was a song I was remembering, like it was already written. It just came out.” Guitarist Richard Garcia continues, “Bringing Gloom to life, just felt right, even if it isn’t most people would expect a progressive metal band to release as a single. But honestly, we just love to be showing the “sensitive” side of the band with Gloom, because, just like humans, we are dual, we need both sides of the coin.”

Sifting’s latest full-length album Not from Here, was released in 2017 via Eclipse Records. The album was produced by Ryan Williams (Deftones, Stone Temple Pilots, Rage Against the Machine) and Steve Evetts (Sense’s Fail, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Suicide Silence). The band has previously released four music videos promoting the album for the songs ‘Blowing Fire’, ‘Nothing but Us’, ‘Not from Here’, and the progressive metal masterpiece ‘Epsilon’. The band recently wrapped up North American tours supporting Prong, Powerflo, Dayshell, and Eyes Set to Kill, and they are currently on tour with Sons of Apollo and Felix Martin (see dates below).
