Renowned progressive rock icons, Steve Hogarth and Richard Barbieri, have released a music video for the track, “Naked,” taken from the duo’s collaborative debut, Not The Weapon But The Hand: http://vimeo.com/37944777. Christopher Kenworthy, who recently directed the video for Anathema’s, “Dreaming Light,” directed the “Naked” visual adaptation.
Not The Weapon But The Hand released last month on Kscope Music.
“It goes beyond what you might expect from the two of us,” said Hogarth. “The album consists of music which is at times moving, complex, multilayered, spooky, goofy and, of course, very personal.”
