Here is the trailer for the video, which will be premiering next week.
Permafrost was formed in 1982, in Molde, Norway by Frode Heggdal Larsen and Kåre Steinsbu, during the first post punk era, taking their name from a Magazine track. They released the “Godtment” EP a year later. Robert Heggdal, Trond Tornes and eventually Daryl Bamonte, who had worked with bands like Depeche Mode, and The Cure, rounded out the group. In 2019 they released the “Permafrost” EP. “Femme Fatale” and “Closed Eyes” singles were released earlier last year.
