Ex-Lives is one hell of album — seamlessly mixing the bands penchant for melody from their more modern day releases and the intense hardcore of Hot Damn! But of all the tracks to pick for another video, I really wasn’t expecting it to be ‘I Suck (Blood)‘,  a track that just happens to be tucked in between my personal album highlights, ‘Typical Miracle‘ and ‘Partying Is Such Sweet Sorrow‘. Nonetheless, the band set out to outdo the slightly unnerving video for ‘Revival Mode and the scatter-gun archive footage of ‘Underwater Bimbos From Outer Space by exploring the relationship between a stalker and his victim. I don’t want to ruin too much for you but it’s worth noting that the video has given me a new found respect for the track, so I’m glad they went with it.
