VAN HALST Ask The ‘Questions’ With New Music Video Premiere On Femme Metal

Canadian gothic rockers VAN HALST are asking the ‘Questions’ with their new music video premiered on Femme Metal. The video emphasizes to viewers a strong message to take action against domestic violence and rape culture among many other issues that vocalist Kami Van Halst writes in her socially conscious lyrics.
Kami Van Halst comments:

““Questions is a very important song for us. There is so much victim blaming in our society and we wanted to draw attention to this issue. My sister (Brittney Grabill) and I wrote this song in response to a series of sexual assaults that were happening in our home town. We were appalled by the lack of focus on the perpetrator and the questions being asked of the victims such as “Well what were they doing there in the first place?” We need to stop putting the blame on the victims and shift our focus to preventing these altercations in the first place. People need to understand that violence and abuse towards another person, any person, is not ok.”

Please be advised this video shows scenes of violence towards women. This is intended to raise awareness about victim blaming.
Watch ‘Questions’ via Femme Metal Webzine.

VAN HALST released their debut album ‘World of Make Believe’ on March 4th, 2016, which is now available on iTunes and Bandcamp.
