After releasing their latest record ‘Death Atlas’ last year, Cattle Decapitation have shot a video for track Bring Back The Plague on their phones while in isolation.
Vocalist Travis Ryan said with tour plans on hold and isolation widespread, now was the perfect time to update their original lyrics-only video.
“With the cancellation of our ironically titled ‘Europandemic Tour’ and social distancing recommendations set in place, we found ourselves with not much to do,” Ryan said.
“So we figured why not address the elephant in the room in the form of a music video for ‘Bring Back The Plague’ and just film it on our mobile phones instead of with an actual crew.
“Dave didn’t even have access to a drum kit and nobody is leaving their houses anyways so we decided to lighten the mood with a video.
“Everything from the band name to the lyrics to the merchandise to the imagery have always been heavily steeped in metaphors and irony always with tongue firmly in cheek, so this new video by David Hall at Uneasy Sleeper may just be our coup de gras…for better, or for worse.
“Just don’t take it too seriously, we obviously didn’t … so sit back, have a laugh if you can and stay the fuck home.”
