Deerhoof have released a new animated video for ‘Be Unbarred, O Ye Gates of Hell’

It's the opening track from their new LP, 'Actually, You Can'

Deerhoof have released a new animated video for ‘Be Unbarred, O Ye Gates of Hell’, the opening track from their new LP, ‘Actually, You Can’.

The album is set for release this Friday, 22nd October, via Joyful Noise Recordings.

Speaking about the song’s inspiration, the band explain: “Maya Angelou once said, ‘You can’t plant onions and expect to harvest tomatoes,’ and that kind of sums up our philosophy on this record. This song is a sort of cover of a Baroque opera aria by G F Handel (of Messiah fame). We wanted to pair our cartoon death metal version of that aria, about a jailbreaking angel kidnapping souls from Hell, with a video of dancing anticapitalist tomatoes.”
