Prog metal outfit Periphery have dropped off an intense visual for their latest Periphery IV: Hail Stan single, “Chvrch Bvrner.”
The action-packed clip directed by Justin Reich follows a group of children who carry out a bank heist. Things increasingly get violent and brutal when the youths start whipping out firearms and pulling martial arts moves on their adult hostages.
“Our video for ‘Chvrch Bvrner’ is a bit of a strange concept,” guitarist Jake Bowen said in a press statement. “It’s one where kids grow up too fast and the irresistible power of money converge. We teamed up with director Justin Reich to bring this bizarre reality to life and he did a fantastic job.”
Periphery IV: Hail Stan is the follow-up to the group’s 2017 Grammy-nominated album, Periphery III: Select Difficulty. The new record arrived in April and includes tracks like “Blood Eagle,” “Reptile” and “Garden in the Bones.”
