Roadkill Ghost Choir Release "A Blow To The Head" Music Video

Roadkill Ghost Choir today release a video for their song "A Blow To The Head."  Just in time for Halloween, watch the creepy video below:

About the video, lead singer Andy Shepard said: "We found a box of old VHS tapes at this thrift shop in Deland, Florida. One was this old Italian b-horror movie that must have been recorded off of late-night television. The tape was so messed up we couldn't really tell what was happening so we just imagined it. Cults, people in cages, stabbing, running. It doesn't make any sense but it scared the hell out of everyone. We left it on a loop in the studio and it became the inspiration for 'A Blow to the Head'. We took some of the VHS footage and messed with it to make the video.  There was also conveniently this old movie poster in the box - see if you can translate it."

The band have also announced additional tour dates for the last few months of 2014, including dates added in December on the west coast. For the band's full itinerary, please see below.

The band are touring in support of their debut album, In Tongues, which was released in August. The album was streamed via Consequence of Sound and Relix hailed the album, saying "In Tongues sounds like the kid brother to MMJ's classic It Still Moves: it's a modern take on Americana flush with pedal steel guitar, spacey keys, churning percussion and Andrew Shepard's vocals...his voice [is] an ethereal gust of wind blowing through these stormy songs.

Emerging from the desolate heart of Central Florida, Roadkill Ghost Choir make unsettling, powerful American rock-Tom Petty by way of Radiohead and Cormac McCarthy. Set against Kiffy Myer's ghostly pedal steel, singer and main songwriter Andrew Shepard triumphantly conjures an allegorical American landscape of drifters, specters and violent saints. Andrew's brothers Maxx (drums) and Zach (bass) Shepard round out the rhythm section, and Stephen Garza handles lead guitar.


The band released their debut EP 'Quiet Light' in 2013 in the midst of a touring run that included opening for Band of Horses and festival slots at New York's Governor's Ball, Austin City Limits and Shaky Knees in Atlanta, GA. In January 2014, the band was invited to perform on the David Letterman Show, where they performed "Beggar's Guild."
