Watch: Humanist Airs New Single/Video "Shock Collar (Feat. Dave Gahan)"

Humanist,  the brainchild of producer and Exit Calm guitarist Rob Marshall, has teamed up with Depeche Mode frontman Dave Gahan on new single "Shock Collar".

The song is taken from his eponymous debut album, set to arrive on February 21st via ignition Records. Pre-order your copy here.

Gahan comments; “It was a pleasure to be asked to be a part of Rob’s ‘Humanist’ project. Mark Lanegan asked me, and I liked the idea immediately… It’s a beast! I went for the vocal, with the visual of driving fast on an empty highway… We shot the video over a couple of days in New York, and it all came together”. Rob Marshall continues; “I’d been writing a lot of music at the time for the record, and I was really getting back into big guitar tracks again, and I had a song (which would eventually become ‘Shock Collar) that I felt could be a great single. It was something special when Dave said he would sing this. He’s achieved so much over the years, an incredible front man, with such a soaring voice and presence, but with no trademark tone of celebrity or ego whatsoever. Very humble, gentle and giving. When we shot the video, he worked extremely hard on the day, performing each take with total gusto and energy, which didn’t let up throughout his performances.”

The project features the vocals of Mark Lanegan (Queens Of The Stone Age), Dave Gahan (Depeche Mode), Mark Gardener (Ride), Carl Hancock Rux (David Holmes, Portishead), John Robb (The Membranes), Joel Cadbury (UNKLE), Ilse Maria, Ron Sexsmith and Jim Jones (The Jim Jones Revue, Thee Hypnotics).

The video was directed by Derrick Belcham and Tracy Maurice. Watch it below.
