“LOCUST was our first pick for a music video and as the opening track for the album because it really sets the tempo of the album,” explains Raymond Herrera, Arkaea drummer. “It is a strong track that shows a great introduction to what Arkaea is all about. We knew that we needed to come out swinging and LOCUST definitely offers that Punch.”
