Like LARPers recreating medieval duels, noise-rockers A Place to Bury Strangers hit up Central Park to film their own fantastical tale of good vs. evil with the video for “Leaving Tomorrow” (sadly, no tunics or plastic broadswords are used). Self-shot by the band on the iPhone 8mm app, the vid recreates Momo Fujiwara’s “Katsu Gee”, with frontman Oliver Ackerman as the “hapless Terry” being pursued by drummer Robi Gonzalez’s Wizard. The aptly-named Saviour of Mankind (played by bassist Dion Lunadon) tries to save the day, but Terry is transformed into the awful Terrible and everything sort of ends in a bloody manner from there. Regale yourself with tales of ye olde battle by clicking playeth yonder.
The band’s latest album, Worship, is out now via Dead Oceans.
