Nightmare & the Cat Videos
Nightmares x Cats x Gods. Nightmare and the Cat released their video for "Be Your Own God." 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 added, "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 people's help and only you can hold yourself back..."
