CROYDE has the best sunsets in the country, according to Bristol-based band These Reigning Days who have shot their latest video there.
The band set up their instruments on the sand on Wednesday evening, to shoot the video for their upcoming single entitled "Living It Up".
Surprised onlookers were treated to an outdoors performance as the band played their single in front of the cameras.
Journal photographer Rob Tibbles, was out for an evening beach stroll when he came across the band.
"You see quite a lot of strange things on the beach," he said, "but this was one of the more unsuspected.
"I was just walking home from the village when I came across this band blaring out.
"They chose the perfect night for it, the sunset was amazing, I am excited to see the video when it is released."
The band, who played at this year's Glastonbury, and have been a support act to Bon Jovi, chose Croyde to film the video as they needed a "beautiful shooting location."
Sarah Woodward, the bands manager said: "The reason we chose Croyde was because we needed a spectacular sunset and a beautiful location for a happy, upbeat summer song called Living It Up.
"Croyde is West facing so gets the best Sunsets."
The band will be playing The Palladium in Bideford on October 4, and the video for "Living It Up" is due for release later in the year.
