Doro commened recentl on th evideo shoot, which took place in New York City in the Bronx:
“For Manhattan we would have needed permissions to film for each and every street corner – in the Bronx , nobody cares. We purposely trudged around the most rundown quarters in our video truck. The gangs that hung around there were watching every step of ours very, very suspiciously. We felt anything but safe. At times we were downright besieged by dark shapes. I explained to the guys who we were and that 'Raise Your Fist…' can be considered quite a critical song that names and shames the constantly growing injustice in the world.”
Doro offered the gang members and homeless people to act in the video, and the subliminal aggression quickly changed into enthusiasm.
“That was the best we could have done”, Doro explains. “The video came out absolutely great. And the parts with the people from the Bronx are the ones I like most. And it was also way better for our health (laughs).”
“Everyone who likes the EP will sure be delighted by the album with it’s 13 to 14 songs as well. I’ve put all my passion, blood, sweat and tears into my first record for Nuclear Blast that will be released on October 19th.“
Raise Your Fist will contain the following songs and will be issued on CD, vinyl and as digital download:
'Raise Your Fist In The Air'
'LèVe Ton Poing Vers Le Ciel'
