CraveOnline is proud to present an exclusive short-form video teaser for The Decemberists' second single off their new album, entitled “This Is Why We Fight”.
The video reunites the band with director Aaron Stewart-Ahn, with whom they worked on videos for “16 Military Wives” and “O Valencia”. In the 15-second teaser clip, we're witness to a ruddy-faced youth, aiming a homemade bow & arrow in a field before holding feathers up to the sun. It's not much to go on, but the rich color and cinematic quality certainly leave us ready for more of whatever grand picture this is to become.
The Decemberists' chart-topping sixth album, The King Is Dead, has reaped the rewards of critical acclaim and the rarity of solid sales in a dying industry. The album is remarkable, and you can check out our review here.
