Today, Hot Water Music dropped the video for “State of Grace”, the band’s latest single off this year’s Exister (via Rolling Stone). Lyrically, the track digresses on the human condition, specifically the world’s tampering of food, and the clip takes that idea to heart. It’s like the human portraits of Marina Abramovic meets Steven Soderbergh’s Contagion.

“‘State of Grace’ was simply inspired by an infectious epidemic of health problems caused from the constant consumption of genetically modified food and non-organic farming continued to run on chemicals or additives,” singer Chuck Ragan told Rolling Stone. “The fact of the matter is that our society as a whole has veered away from the simplicity of growing food and is now suffering and will continue to suffer the consequences until a greater population decides to make a change for the better.”

As previously reported, Hot Water Music will hit the road alongside Gaslight Anthem and Rise Against for a fall tour. Consult the full itinerary below.
