Published Apr 14, 2011The Decemberists' folksy new album, The King Is Dead, is much less ambitious and theatrical than past releases. But the same can't be said about the video for "This Is Why We Fight."
The clip shows a gang of youths dressed in bedraggled clothes, revolting against a violent leader. It's halfway between a political coup and The Lost Boys, and the vid ends just as the conflict is about to explode.
Here's hoping for a sequel video that shows the aftermath.
