Locals Only: East Lansing's Wilson Shows 'Zombie Side' on New Music Video
For East Lansing alt-metal group Wilson, 2010 has brought many firsts: a first album ("Standing on the Reel") and a new singer (Chad Nicefield), to name a few.
Add to that a first music video for the track, "Snake Eyes."
If you’re familiar with Wilson’s music, then the theme of zombies in the music video won’t come as a surprise. Like the band’s album, which is centered around a zombie apocalypse of sorts, the action-packed video is based on the concept of a "zombie mockumentary," where the band goes around capturing people to come party with them at a show.
The guys --- Nicefield, Jason Spencer (guitar), Joel Mathews (guitar), Drew Rambo (bass) and Michael McGowan (drums) --- shot the video in two epic days. The first day was outdoor footage in an open field in Livonia, and the second was live footage of the guys rocking a party, which was shot at The Crofoot in Pontiac.
