At The Drive In Release New Single And Video


Rock band, At The Drive In, have released a new single from their upcoming new album, in • ter a • li • a, due out May 5h on Rise Records/Cooking Vinyl Australia. As if that wasn't enough, the band have also released a music video to accompany the track 'Hostage Stamps'.

Vocalist Cedric Bixler-Zavala describes the song as "like walking through the hallway in some war-torn ghetto and reading the writing on the wall. When you hear things like, ‘Raise your nithing pole,’ I don’t think anyone will know what that is right away, but when you look it up, it’s this curse. We are going to be victorious. Here’s the fucking head on the stake in front of our army. We’re coming back. It’s reading the writing on the wall. It’s going and keeping your ear to the ground and listening to the heartbeat of young people.”

The new video, directed by Rob Shaw and Damon Locks (who also designed the characters and set) is an ominous accompaniment, using a mix of stop-motion as well as digital animation. It's a powerful video with a powerful message. But why take our word for it? Take a look for yourself now.
