[News] The Mystical Hot Chocolate Endeavors present videoclip for new single “How Much Longer?”

Boston-based Progressive Rock Fusionists The Mystical Hot Chocolate Endeavors will release their much-awaited, sophomore studio album, entitled “A Clock Without A Craftsman,” via Massacre Records.

With “A Clock Without A Craftsman,” the band unleashes a hefty 98-minutes-long double concept album, bringing together various sounds and styles for a truly unique listening experience. From the Heaviest of Heavy, to the most Atmospheric of Ambience, everyone will find something to enjoy on this musical journey. The album was written as a self/world analysis during the uncertain times that were the 2020 lockdown. Societal uproar, mental health degradation, substance abuse, what extreme isolation does to a person. After the band shared two first singles, “Sorry” and “Eye To Eye,” today, The Mystical Hot Chocolate Endeavors present a music video for the track “How Much Longer?”

The new The Mystical Hot Chocolate Endeavors video is now premiering here:

Says vocalist and guitarist, Craig Schmuhl:
“How Much Longer?” is a song written amidst the chaos of 2020. During this time I was at a low point in life where nothing seemed to make sense. A future in live music seemed incomprehensible.  I’d developed some nasty drinking habits that were creating issues for myself and the people around me. I was going through some of the worst physical pain in my life between Scoliosis and Scheuerann’s Kyphosis and on top of all of that, society seemed to be holding on by a thread.  It was hard to speculate if we would ever be returning to any sense of “normal”. “How Much Longer?” was a question I seemed to be asking myself a lot.

The Mystical Hot Chocolate Endeavors started off in 2015 as a passion project by Hate Storm Annihilation founder Craig Schmuhl, who had been interested in pursuing musical endeavors outside the sonic boundaries of the Death Metal genre. The band delivers a unique live musical experience that offers incredible dynamic range to a wide array of sonic territories. Everything from 70’s Progressive Rock, 90’s Alternative Rock/Shoegaze, 80’s New Wave, 2000’s Post-Rock, and even moments of Modern “Extreme Metal.” In February of 2022, The Mystical Hot Chocolate Endeavors signed with Massacre Records and released their much-acclaimed “MU-TH-UR EP.”
