Zombies descend on town as music video is filmed in Stourbridge

Unsuspecting shoppers may have thought the zombie apocalypse had started outside the Dudley News offices last weekend as a zombie-style music video was filmed in Stourbridge.

Scenes that would not have looked out of place in horror flick Return of the Living Dead unfolded in the High Street, Market Street and the Ryemarket shopping centre, while monstrous looking figures were also seen clawing at the Dudley News offices.

The spectacle was in fact the filming of a new music video for acclaimed singer/songwriter Ian Passey, who works under the moniker of The Humdrum Express and who has released 13 albums and EP's to date.

And behind the camera was Black Country musician/music video director Nick J Townsend, of metal band Weak13, who has created more than 30 video clips for national and international artists. Ian, from Kidderminster, explained:

"I’ve been teaming up with Nick pretty regularly. He’s someone I really enjoy working with to help expand on some of my ideas. I also love to get as many people involved as possible with the ideas and I’m always amazed by how many love being a part of them.”

More than 60 actors and music fans, aged from just three months to 72, took part in the music video shoot for Ian’s newest single 'E-Petition', which will be released as a single on Halloween.
