Legendary metal act Cattle Decapitation aren’t letting the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic get them down. The group just dropped their music video for the track “Bring Back The Plague” from their most recent album, Death Atlas, which was filmed completely in self-isolation. Check it out below.

Vocalist Travis Ryan comments:

With the cancellation of our ironically titled ‘Europandemic Tour’ and social distancing recommendations set in place, we found ourselves with not much to do. 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. After all it is April Fool’s Day so sit back, have a laugh if you can, and stay the fuck home.

Cattle Decapitation’s Death Atlas was released via Metal Blade Records on November 29, 2019, and is available to stream/purchase here.
