Luke Bather - 11th May 2016

Ariel Vida brings us a heavily-stylised, Robert Rodriguez-esque B-movie music video. It has all the trappings of a kitschy American road movie: seedy motels, booze, gambling, violence and the open road. And an unstoppable avenging angel.

We follow our anti-hero as he unleashes his vengeance on the members of a shady corporation that destroyed his world, and possibly his life. Classic Western tropes executed here with a horror movie twist, and a superfun fondness for the genre.

The World Ender comes from Lord Huron's second album Strange Trails, which the band have also turned into a comic book, sold with the album.
