One-Eyed Doll have released their new video Afflicted where they pay homage to the Salem Witch victims. The video was directed by Patrick Kendall [Megadeth, Incubus, Theory Of A Deadman] and was shot in Danvers (formerly Salem Village), modern-day Salem, Sleepy Hollow and New York City, all in the aftermath of Winter Storm Juno. Vocalist/Guitarist Kimberly Freeman explains,

“The video is a bit of fiction and history combined. The story ebbs between fantasy and reality to portray the confusion and desperation of the Salem Witchcraft Hysteria of 1692. The people of Salem Village were the captives of religious oppression, ruled by overwhelming guilt and fear. The entire album is, in fact, a concept about the subject. This particular song references (and directly quotes at times) historical court documents including the forced confession of the first person accused of witchcraft in Salem. In the preserved handwritten records from 1692, she admits signing her soul over to the devil. Several young girls of the town convulse and swear that she has afflicted them with her magic. The Afflicted music video isn’t the story of just one person, but a blend of accounts of various tragedies, mixed with metaphorical interpretations. We kind of meshed them together to create a fictional work. This video, along with the rest of the ‘Witches’ album, is our way of paying tribute to the innocents who suffered so greatly under the weight of cruel religious hypocrisy in the 1690’s.

We’re humbled and honored to have worked with some incredible talent on this project, on and off screen. We even had some fans involved! It was a tough, great experience.”
