Nightmare and the Cat – “Be Your Own God” video

Nightmare and the Cat


Capitol Music Group recording artist Nightmare and the Cat premiered the video for “Be Your Own God” across VEVO’s apps and web platform.

The video was shot in Los Angeles at the band’s rehearsal space and was directed by visual creator Ed Shiers with costumes and other imagery designed by renowned contemporary artist Gary Baseman who has contributed to the group’s album art, logos and other imagery for the band since their inception.

Guitarist Sam Stewart sports a ‘Veritas’ t-shirt designed by Baseman in the video and explains, “Veritas is one of Gary’s characters. He is the God of Truth. We love the imagery of Gary’s work and it often pairs perfectly with our music. ‘Veritas’ goes hand in hand with “Be Your Own God” because he is all about being true to yourself at all costs. The song is about taking control of your own destiny and accepting ownership of your actions. It’s also about being yourself and not worrying about living up to someone else’s expectations of who you are supposed to be.”

Lead singer Django Stewart adds, “It’s about letting go of the problems in your life and being the creator of your own destiny. It’s saying you can achieve your dreams without other peoples help and only you can hold yourself back…”
