Zeal & Ardor Premiere “Death To The Holy” Music Video

Zeal & Ardor have premiered a new video for their song “Death To The Holy.” This track is from the band’s recently released self-titled album. Manuel Gagneux commented:

“The video for ‘Death To The Holy‘ marks a visual departure from our established aesthetic. A short and buzzing rumination on the question ‘What would happen if we get proof of God’s nonexistence?’ Directed by Jen Ries, it perfectly matches the song’s urgency and relentlessness.”
