Video Premiere: Freedom To Glide – Rain Part 1
Prog Magazine is proud to premiere Freedom To Glide’s video for Rain Part 1. View it below.
It’s the lead track from upcoming concept album Rain, the brainchild of Pete Riley and Andy Nixon, both are members of leading Pink Floyd tribute act Dark Side Of The Wall.
The record is set during World War I and it’s based on the experiences of Riley’s grandfather, Corporal Robert Wilson, who survived the conflict.
Riley tells Prog: “Rain Part 1 is about the young men of WW1, filled with pride and keen for glory, being sent by their leaders to a foreign land to do their dirty work for them. Parts 2, 3 and 4 continue the theme.”
The video was shot by the band with the help of re-enactment society Up An’ At ‘Em History. The success of the collaboration has led to plans for a full album movie.
Riley says: “We feel that with such a fantastic group of professional and like-minded guys willing to be involved, we can turn what was once a pipe dream into a reality.”
