DEFEATER – “Divination” video

DEFEATER have debuted  the official video for “Divination”, taken from their latest album “Abandoned”, premiered earlier this month and available for streaming at this location.  Derek Archambault drew influence from his recent life-altering hip surgery. Watch below, but first read the official word from frontman Derek Archambault, who offered the following commentary to Substream magazine, who premiered the video yesterday:

“‘Divination’ picks up where we last left our protagonist in ‘Spared In Hell’; struggling with his vices behind the pulpit but now finding salvation in love and a life outside his seminary

Memories of war and fallen friends haunted his days to lead him further into the depths of addiction, but the love that has found him shines a dim light of hope in his darkest nights.”

Lyrics:

I walk in shadows and darkness
I feel the fill of the sand
My words are calloused and poisoned
Easy work, the more idle the hand

Cover my tracks to the pulpit
The back alley’s my arms
My veins are thinning and poisoned
Lying tongues in mouths of snakes, guile charm

I feel the fill of the sand
I feel the fill of the sin
I feel the fill of the sand
I feel the fill

Breathe addiction and darkness
I feel the smoke in my lungs
My lips spit venom and poison
All lies except when speaking of love

Cover my ears to the ringing
To the memories and pain
Her voice like the singing of sirens
Drown myself among the rocks and the waves

I feel the fill of the sand
My veins, the touch of her hand
I feel the fill of the sin
The ash, the touch of her hand
I feel the fill of the sand
My veins, the touch of her hands
I feel the fill of the sin
I feel the fill

In my hour of darkness
I feel the feel of the sin
My wounds are calloused and poisoned
Easy work, the more idle the hand
Cover my tracks pulpit
The back alley’s my arms
My veins are thinning in poison
Lying tongues in mouths of snakes, guile charm

I feel the fill of the sand
I Pray to dirt, folded hands
I feel the fill of the sin
My veins, the touch of her hands
