NEW VIDEO BY ROADKILL GHOST CHOIR
About the video, lead singer Andy Shepard said: “We found a box of old VHS tapes at this thrift shop in Deland, Florida. One was this old Italian b-horror movie that must have been recorded off of late-night television. The tape was so messed up we couldn’t really tell what was happening so we just imagined it. Cults, people in cages, stabbing, running. It doesn’t make any sense but it scared the hell out of everyone. We left it on a loop in the studio and it became the inspiration for ‘A Blow to the Head’. We took some of the VHS footage and messed with it to make the video. There was also conveniently this old movie poster in the box – see if you can translate it.”
