The band perform the song in a house in the teeth of a ferocious dust storm - so bad they momentarily become dust themselves - until the sheer power of This Ladder Is Ours drives the storm away. It's a cinematic departure from Greg's in-camera VFX videos - but this was largely shot in-camera too.

The video was shot in a house in Agua Dulce, CA (an hour's drive north of LA) the band performing amid 'movie dirt' blown by giant fans. The effect as an accompaniment to a big performance, is tremendous, although the band are probably still cleaning the dust out of their ears... Greg explains all at Video Static.
