Speaking on his band’s latest music video release, frontman Zelli shares

"This song is about a man who has witnessed the overwhelming atrocity that played out in the first three chapters of the band and is now trying to process it with the help of diary entries. The words describe his life, which on the one hand shows the beautiful and positive events he experienced yet on the other hand, demonstrate the pure horror he witnessed.

"This is the most elaborate music video our band has ever filmed. It is a metaphor for the lyrical content of the song. On the outside everything seems fun and larger than life, but deep down the man is imprisoned by his overwhelming, dark thoughts and self-loathing. Having Florent of LANDMVRKS on the song with us was awesome. He also joins us in the video and gives an explosive performance. He is our long-time producer and a good friend of ours, so it was only a matter of time before we finally joined forces.

"Welcome to the next chapter of Paleface. This is just the beginning."


Paleface was formed in Zurich, Switzerland in 2017 by vocalist Marc Zellweger (Zelli) and drummer Colin Hammond (CJ) having met through a mutual friend in 2016. After bonding over a shared love of beatdowns and hardcore, Zelli and CJ shook hands at a concert in 2017 and promised they would create the craziest beatdown band ever together.

They recruited guitarist Yannick Lehmann to the band and released their debut ‘Chapter 1: From The Gallows’ in 2018. Later that year, they brought bassit Tommy-Lee Abt to Paleface family. They played their first show in October 2018 and quickly grew in popularity with the song “Deprivation Method”.

In early 2019, Paleface started writing ‘Chapter 2: Witch King’ which was released in May 2019. The band started to gain international attention with the release of tracks “Human Hunter” and “Skin People”. They released the single “No Mercy At All” at the end of 2019 and started working on the final installment of the dark story they’d created with Chapters 1 & 2.

Chapter 3: The Last Selection’ was released on October 30th 2020 to much acclaim. PALEFACE released two music videos for huge tracks “Curse Us”, “The Rats” and “Skalpell” which quickly ranked high in the deadown/hardcore charts and saw the band become cover stars on Spotify’s Heavy Beatdown playlist. The released the music video for "Lights Out" earlier this year. Their releases to date have seen them clock up nearly 3.5 million streams across all platforms and 90k monthly listeners on Spotify alone.

The band have been hard at work on new material and will have more news to share in the coming weeks

The neutrality Switzerland is known for globally does not apply to Paleface.

They came to destroy.
