There were some strange sights down on a Preston farm as the undead made a reappearance for one night only.

Local band Saviours took over Vernon Carus Farm, Penwortham, to film a music video with some rather unusual guest stars – zombies.

The five-piece band, made up of frontman Joe Sutton, guitarist Jon Cookson, drummer Warren Digney, bassist Jacob Whittle and Michael Farrow on turntables and synths, found themselves under siege at their shoot for their new single Sky Scraper on a suitably grey overcast day.

Michael, 30, from Ashton, Preston, said: “We wanted to make a zombie apocalypse video so put the call out on our Facebook page for people to volunteer to be zombies and loads of people came to film with us.

“We had friends, family and fans down there – we even had a 1960s VW camper van which was pretty temperamental, so that was pretty interesting.

“It turned out to be a really fun day. We had a barbecue on the go for everyone too as a thank you and just had a great laugh.”

Saviours recorded the video with the help of talented filmmaker Patrick Walsh and UCLan also lent a hand, providing laboratory facilities for the video.

Michael, who is studying to be a teacher and also runs non-profit music studio Twisted Label, said: “Since we shot the video we’ve had a lot of interest on YouTube and with the Halloween season almost upon us, I’m sure we’ll be getting a few more hits.”

After escaping a bloodbath of zombie carnage, the lads from Saviours, who have already found success supporting The Dainton & Pritchard Tour from MTV’s Dirty Sanchez and received airplay on BBC Radio Lancashire, will be performing at a number of gigs in and around Preston, details of which can be found at www.facebook.com/savioursmusic.

The single Sky Scraper is also available to download now from iTunes.
