James (Mattock, guitar and vocals) explains a bit about the video for ‘Luck’; "The video for Luck was shot in Northampton at my friend's art studio where I currently reside with my fiancée.
"It's an old victorian factory building, and it ties in with Sharks' history as Aasen Stephenson (deathhouse), who works here, did a lot of artwork for our records in the past."
And on the videos concept; "The concept for the video is the most simple and direct idea we've had, but the actual process of filming was extremely difficult.
"The studio is above a funeral home, and since we filmed through the hours of midnight to 4am, within the first or second take the police were banging down the door and were having shut the whole thing down.
"Subsequently, Sam (Lister, drums) had to play the drums without practically making any noise, and with having to mime along to the track and everything, he did a good job. The projections on the walls are just a couple of movies I love including 'The Man Who Laughs' and a personal favourite, 'The Penalty'."
The band are currently demo’ing new material for their 2nd studio album, which will be recorded in a much more raw, less polished way at the end of 2012, set for a release in March/April 2013.
