A 1000 Days Gone had to censor their video because it allegedly "incited riotous behaviour".
After the initial video for their first single 'Fire' was banned on YouTube, A 1000 Days Gone have now released a censored version of the politically-charged visuals.
The Belfast band used stock footage of historical events like riots, famous speeches and burning buildings to underline the political message of the song: 'Fire' is about the uncertain polarised time that we live in, about Brexit and the backstop.
Watch the censored music video for 'Fire' below:
The original video was banned for "inciting violence" - although the idea behind the visuals was aiming for the opposite. All 'violent' scenes in the video are now blocked with two big 'censored' logos. The band have questioned with the fact that they included footage of the French riots and Julian Assange led to the decision to censor the video.
"Having had our original video banned for inciting riotous behaviour, we have produced a heavily censored version all the family can enjoy without the threat of taking to the streets", A 1000 Days Gone writes in the description of the new video.
Born in Belfast with four members from different backgrounds, A 1000 Days Gone combine a fresh and unique sound with a solid rock backbone. Their raw rock sound is sewn together with lead and rhythm guitars, bass and drums, while the delivery of their political messages reminds one of Rage Against The Machine, QOTSA and Audioslave.
