Reconvened West Texans AT THE DRIVE IN have just released a brand new video.
The band's first video in years, 'Hostage Stamps' is the third single to be taken from their comeback album in • ter a • li • a.
Using a mix of stop-motion as well as digital animation, the video was directed by Rob Shaw and Damon Locks, who also designed the characters and set.
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 album is due for release on 5 May through Rise Records. It's available to pre-order now through the band's website.
At The Drive In play the Reading and Leeds Festivals at the end of August.
