Trance heavyweights Above & Beyond’s Group Therapy has inspired millions and millions around the world. They’ve toured over the last 13 months with this release; single after single “therapatizing” trance fans and lovers alike. Now after releasing their latest single package for “On My Way To Heaven”, they have a new video for it too.
Employing famous Shakespearian and Hollywood actor Steven Berkoff, the video is a one-man show of lip-syncing and soliloquizing to Richard Bedford’s emotive vocals and Above & Beyond’s masterful beats.
“Someone told me recently that the lyrics to ‘On My Way to Heaven’ sound like a Shakespearean soliloquy set to music,” Tony McGuinness, one-third of the group, tells Rolling Stone. “It’s a wonderful thought, and very flattering. So the idea of casting a well-known Shakespearean actor in the video to realize that idea was just too tempting. My first choice was Steven Berkoff – he does unhinged better than anyone – and incredibly, he said yes. It’s a nightmare come true.”
