The impressive two-minute clip follows the concept of the band’s EP which is completely based on zombies – escaping them, surviving the zombie plague – and a survivor who spends his days warding off the brain-starved and loneliness.  Baney shot the clip earlier this summer in London, Ohio, on the outskirts of Columbus.  “We needed a location that had big, open fields, and a sense of isolation, and this place was perfect,” said Baney.  “We got friends and friends of friends to be in it, and my brother William, was cast to play the lead.  I guess he knew someone…”
