Cane Hill Premiere “God Is The Enemy” Music Video

Cane Hill have premiered a new video for their new song “God Is The Enemy.” Elijah Witt had the following to say about the track, which completes the band’s “Krewe De La Mort” collection:

“‘God Is the Enemy’ is an honest comment on contemporary Christians and their skewed views of living Christ-like. From the hypocrisy of the church shielding its abusive history (and their present) to the blatant racism, control of women’s bodily autonomy using the bible as a scapegoat — it’s obvious that the followers of Christ have gone astray. ‘GITE’ implores you to imagine how the religious world would react if someone claimed to be the son of God again.”

Cane Hill Premiere “Kill Me” Music Video

Cane Hill have premiered a new song titled “Kill Me.” You can find an official video for that track below:

Elijah Witt said the following about the song:

“I think if this year has taught me anything, it’s that this dreadful voice of negativity in my head is loudest when my life is quiet. Just like everyone else, my mental health has taken a steep decline this year, and giving life to that horrific voice was the easiest way for me to try and combat it. ‘Kill Me‘ is what I feel in the parts of me I can ignore when life is normal.”

He also added the following about the video:

“‘Kill Me‘ adds another chapter to ‘Krewe De La Mort’ that continues to bring Louisiana folklore to life. Building upon the visual intensity we established with ‘P.O.T.H.,’ we worked closely with Dreamseeker Productions in further exploring elements of witchcraft and the occult while staying true to these Cajun tales.”

Cane Hill Premiere “Power Of The High” Video

Cane Hill have premiered a new video for their new song “Power Of The High.” You can check that out below:

Elijah Witt said the following about the song:

“‘Power Of The High‘ is inconsolable fury and anguish. An accumulation of the woes, trails, and tribulations of our recent years from mind-altering aficionados to unwilling servants drowning in the unforgiving tides of the music industry, we’ve found ourselves passionately emboldened by the rage fostered whilst stuck between our realities. A declaration of third-eye-rebellion, ‘POTH’ is a calling to everyone we know and may meet to join us in breaking the mold that’s been given to you by a higher power and realize the divine being you always have been.”

He also added the following about the video:

“We dove back into our horror roots by joining forces with the local production company, Dreamseeker, to create a psychedelic twist on Louisiana folklore such as The Rougarou. ‘Power of the High‘ kicks off Krewe De La Morte, which is Volume 1 of larger vision. Join us, live with us, die with us. Welcome to The Krewe.”
