ROCK AT NIGHT VIDEO PREMIERE – King County’s ‘WISH (Recreated)’


Kings County

Kings County’s Video “WISH (Recreated)” – Worldwide release date is October 31, 2023

Orlando-based heavy rock band Kings County are releasing a video for their white hot cover of Nine Inch Nail’s “WISH” worldwide on Halloween–but you can see it here TODAY, at Rock At Night! Created by Jon Vulpine of Glass Dagger Film Company, the video was filmed at the West Virginia Penitentiary in Moundsville, West Virginia, and in Milledgeville, Georgia. You can read about the band’s creepy, haunted experience at the prison in Rock At Night’s Fall 2023 issue.

Rock At Night says: We were totally blown away by this cinematic experience, which is unprecedented in today’s music videos. Quality all the way.  Set in a prison, the backdrop is dark and creepy as a woman is trying to escape a gang of prisoners and two freaky contortionists–before things literally heat up (no spoilers here). We see the band performing in a prison yard, with plenty of shooting flames, and choreographed guitar raising, as vocalist Rob Dexter screams the lyrics, “Wish there was something real/wish there was something true.” Not only is the video a visual roller coaster ride but the audio production is superb.

Kings County: Rob Dexter (Vocals, Bass), Steve Bell (Guitars, Vocals), Joe Lopez (Drums) and Bill Kania (Guitars, Vocals)
