TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, April 12, 2024 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Holy Gasp, Toronto’s genre-defying super group, marks a significant milestone as they celebrate the first anniversary of their critically acclaimed album “…And the Lord Hath Taken Away.” To commemorate this occasion, they are set to premiere the music video in Canada, Mexico and Poland for their standout track “Devil Oh Devil” at various international film festivals.

The Canadian premiere screening of “Devil Oh Devil” took place in Toronto on April 6th, 2024, at Toronto’s Hot Docs Cinema as an Official Selection of the Toronto Animation Arts Festival International.

The video will be showcased in Poland on April 17th, 2024, as an Official Selection of the Music Video Competition of the 13th International Animated Film Festival ANIMOCJE, and in Hudson, Quebec on April 19th, 2024 as an Official Selection of the Hudson Animation and Short Film Festival, along with The Holy Gasp’s much-loved animated short, The Algonquin Bridge.

Additionally, fans worldwide can watch both videos, streaming online from Mexico City, where they are being featured as Official Selections of PletNet’s inaugural PletFest CineroFestival from April 4th to April 30th.

“…And the Lord Hath Taken Away,”, co-composed by The Holy Gasp’s lead vocalist, Benjamin Hackman and composer Anthony William Wallace, explores the dark and mesmerizing themes inherent in The Holy Gasp’s unique sound. “Devil Oh Devil” promises to captivate audiences with its bold visuals and evocative storytelling assisted by the Barcelona-based animation studio Alla Kinda.

About “Devil Oh Devil,” writer and lyricist Benjamin Hackman had this to say:

“Throughout every culture we find a demonic archetype, something to aid us in the articulation of the darker, more sinister, life-denying facets of the soul and psyche. We find this figure even when we wish we wouldn’t. Often it seems to find us. It goes by many names: the devil… the shadow… depression. We have each known it in our own ways; some more than others. We see it in our loved ones when they suffer, and some of us have tried with all our strength to rescue the ones we love from the demons to which they are wed. Some of us have succeeded. I myself was not so lucky. “Devil Oh Devil” is a story about the depths we’re willing to journey to rescue the ones we love.”

The Holy Gasp continues to push boundaries in music and animation, and their participation in these esteemed film festivals underscores their innovative approach to storytelling through music.
