The Amazons 'Bloodrush' by James Slater

Promonews - 18th May 2022

The Amazons return to action with the anthemic Bloodrush, and a fun, carnival sideshow-themed video by James Slater that gets the blood, and adrenalin pumping. 

The band wander into this atmospheric setting, absorbed by the performers, including trapeze artists, a BMX rider, fire-juggler - and a knife-throwing act. It's the latter that provides the real thrills as the Zons' lead singer Matt Thomson finds himself in the firing line of the blindfolded knife thrower.

Slater and his production team found authentic talent for their carnival characters - including knife thrower Simon Ratzka, and his assistant Tor Callis - for the video shot at an abandoned amusement park in Lancashire.

All appropriate precautions were taken, of course, when it came to the knives being thrown. No lead singers were harmed in the making of this video...
