Cursive have shared the video for their song “Life Savings”, and the clip directed by Matt Hewitt, and starring Jake Bellows (Neva Dinova) and Morgan Nagler (Whispertown) — can be seen below.
“We worked with friend Matt Hewitt to make this video, he’s been making amazing action/horror shorts since he was young. We gave him full license to come up with the idea and to be as violent and/or as gory as he wanted to be,” says singer/guitarist Tim Kasher.
“Life Savings” is the lead single from the band’s new album Vitriola, which was released on October 5th via their own label 15 Passenger. Watch the video below.
Director Matt Hewitt explains further, “I brought up a few things with Tim as far as inspiration, namely the Scott Smith novel and the equally good Sam Raimi adaptation, A Simple Plan. It seemed to fit with snippets of the lyrics here and there, and while the ‘find money in the woods’ trope is a little tired for a feature, we agreed it made a very jam-packed and interesting video. And gangsters with guns are traipsing around the woods, The Sopranos episode ‘Pine Barrens’ is never far from my mind either, so there was a dash of that too.”
