At the Drive-In teamed up with director Rob Shaw to deliver a video for their in·ter a·li·a cut "Hostage Stamps," and the group have enlisted him once again for another clip for "Call Broken Arrow."
Shaw's latest work for the band serves as a prequel to the "Hostage Stamps" video, using a stop-motion/digital animation hybrid to bring the characters to life. Shaw shared the following statement on the clip:
In "Hostage Stamps," we have a prisoner being tortured and monitored by some sort of authoritarian organization. The guys wanted to show why he was imprisoned, as well as cast doubt over his innocence. It's funny how in stories, especially film stories, you tend to sympathize with whoever you spend time with. When you watch someone being mistreated, the assumption is that person is the victim. "Call Broken Arrow" is in part about illustrating the prisoner's culpability, but even that is in doubt as we see the Watcher character who follows him around slipping something in his drink at the end.
