AN indie punk rock band, hailing from north Kent, have been shooting their first ever music video for the release of their album next month.

The Startover, who have been together for two years, will release Survivors Guide, on Engineer Records, in late December.

Last Sunday the four-man group finished shooting a music video for Worst Case Scenario, from the album, at Rochester Skate Park in front of 100 fans.

Dan Mackey, 24, from Meopham, is bassist in the group and singer and is a teaching assistant at St Georges School in Gravesend.

He plays alongside Scott Mallard and Pete Clarke, both 24 from Gravesend and Joe Cooper, from New Ash Green.

Dan said: "It has been a great two years together and we have done many gigs - the highlights have been playing with Feeder and Ash and our performance at the Hevy Festival in Folkestone.

"It was incredible, playing to 6,000 people was such an experience.

"This year has mainly been about the CD though, and we are very happy with what we have produced."

On November 15, the band took part in a day of filming at the Skate Park in Rochester, shooting individual pieces for camera for the final edit of their video.

Last Sunday, the group performed in front of nearly 100 fans so the cameras could capture crowd shots. After the release of their CD in December, the band hope the video will be shown on music channel MTV.

Dan added: "We shot a video when we released our first video, but we haven't done anything like this.

"It was great to do, and from what I have seen so far, it looks very professional and just what we are looking for."

The Startover will perform their next gig at Dover Town Hall on December 4, and will be appearing at White Oak Leisure Centre in Swanley on December 19.
