Guitarist Corey Davis comments, "‘Dead Smoke’ is the first track off of our latest EP, ‘Of Delight & Despair’. This video represents a personal struggle for control and order;
The struggle of growth as an individual in the world around you and the control over your decisions and routines whether good or bad.
These ideas and experiences are displayed as visual concepts and shed light on the more brutal aspects of these very humane experiences and how the can consume and asphyxiate you emotionally."
Corey continues, “For this particular song we wanted to get quite visually conceptual. The song itself has dark nature to it and is holds meaning to us in a few different ways so we thought it was best to display these concepts through physical metaphors”
