TV icon David Hasselhoff has recorded a metal song, “Through the Night,” with the two-man metal/industrial/electronic project Cuestack. What’s more, he’s filmed a retro sci-fi/cyberpunk music video to go along with the track. Remember “True Survivor,” the song and video he released back in 2015 that basically broke the internet? It was legendary, and we hope and expect this next entry will be as well.
You can’t hear the song yet, unfortunately, nor can you see that video, so the press release we just got about it is one giant tease. But there’s now a Kickstarter campaign to finance the final steps of editing the video, and you can get in on that right here if you want to be part of the Hoff-related action.
The collaboration between Hasselhoff and Cuestack started in 2018 with many demos and meetings to make what seemed like an impossible idea slowly turn into a reality. As life-long “Hoff’” fans, Cuestack had the ultimate goal to create a metal project with the most-watched man on TV, showing the world his heavy side. Hasselhoff recorded “Through the Night” with Cuestack in 2019 in Vienna where they also shot an epic music video together.
The band’s final mission: Finishing the editing process of the cinematic video that will accompany the song. With a limited budget and schedule, Cuestack shot the entire video with Hasselhoff in just one day, using smaller versions of the sets than originally planned. To turn their retro sci-fi/cyberpunk vision into reality, a massive post-production effort is needed now to extend these basic sets into living worlds.
All Kickstarter contributions go directly into financing those final steps. Aside from providing digital downloads, Hasselhoff fans can pre-order the special “Through the Night” box sets, which include a Digipak CD, eight-page booklet with liner notes, printed high-quality autograph card, poster, “Through the Night” baseball cap and custom leather bracelet.
