In the style of Mel Brooks’ comedies Spaceballs and History of the World: Part I, Delta Spirit have released their epically fun new video for the track “Language of the Dead” off of their most recent album Into The Wide.
Frontman Matt Vasquez pulls triple duty as he also directed and wrote the video, which features Agamemnon, Robert E. Lee and Leo Tolstoy, all played by various band members, teaming up in order to vanquish a terrifying space monster, played by Vasquez’s own cat. There are also spaceship, planets, black holes and a whole lot of green screen.
The band has also announced its tour dates to support Into The Wide from March through April, which you can see below.
