For their latest video, NYC-based trio  Pearl and The Band settled on a zombie-apocalypse theme. Usually this would mean an adrenaline junkie fantasy driven by pummeling drums and monster riffs. But the group took another route. Pairing images of the undead with the tender ballad 40K,” from their Kill The Darlings album, the clip takes on an unexpected poignancy. According to the band, the video has it”s origins in their unbridled fandom for The Walking Dead.

“We”re all huge fans of The Walking Dead, and a large part of the feeling of the video was inspired by our Walking Dead geekery … zombies are like the best friend who you clung to after a bad break up. The vampire fad is like the ex-boyfriend who broke up with you and sucked your soul – they only want you around for

as long as they deem fit. When vampires are done with you, they”re done, and they”re very solitary creatures. Zombies, on the other hand, roam in packs, and want all of you — all the pieces. And they”ll take you as you are: every last piece,” they said.

Pearl and The Beard are currently on tour, and are wrapping up a trio of shows with Ani DiFranco this weekend. View the other dates and watch the video below.
