Incite Releases New “WTF” Music Video

Incite wishes you a Happy Halloween with a brand new necro-tastic, NFSW music video. Check out “WTF” below, thanks to Bloody-Disgusting.com.

The video stars Playboy model Carissa White alongside horror actor Brian Rohan, and features special FX by makeup artist Suzi Hale.

Director Robert Sexton is no stranger to horror film and video direction, as winner of the Best Director and Best Actor accolades at the Eerie Film Festival and the man behind music videos by bands such as Hellyeah, Death Angel, The Devil Wears Prada, and more.

Sexton states, “This is as close to a happy ending-ending that I’ve ever directed. I am humbled and thankful for this opportunity to show the world that the worm, does indeed, conquer all. It was a blast working with Richie Cavalera and Incite. This song kicks ass. After watching this video, the viewer may have only one question that beckons an answer…. WTF did I just watch? Kudos to Carissa White and Brian Rohan for acting without fear, Suzi Hale and her makeup team for the SPFX and the whole crew for going above and beyond the call.”

Incite frontman Richie Cavalera adds, “This video is insane from beginning to end. It really makes you say ‘WTF’ once you’ve watched it. Robert really took it to the next level on this one and we’re fired up for you to see it.”

Incite kicks off a tour with 36 Crazyfists, Skinlab, and All Hail the Yeti today in South Lake Tahoe, CA. The tour hits 20 western and central U.S. cities before wrapping up in Chico, CA on November 23rd. See below for a full listing of dates.
