Twelve Foot Ninja have released a video for their new track 'Over And Out', and it's like watching a movie.

But it's unlike any movie you have ever seen.

Guitarist Stevic MacKay had this to say in way of explanation:

“A man covered in cow s**t wanders the Australian bush seeking clarity. Tortured by recurring dreams about having no face, meeting the ferryman in a Finnish swamp, old twitchy people with straw heads, vacuuming the forest, cradling a pike and squash playing goat people who spoil Christmas and drink everyone’s dregs…The only obvious thing to do is find a door Goblin to suck “dream gravy” (aka Vegemite) off his fingers so he can teleport to a Ukrainian mechanical genie to blow his mind with Australian metaphors about being f**ked in the head.”

So yeah, there you go. 

And the actual song is a hulking epic of grooving riffs and planetary melodies that also features a striking appearance from Jinjer's Tatiana Shmayluk.

Vocalist Kin had this to say about the song's themes:

“The song is an ode to the complicated relationship we have with our own mortality and how death can seem like the arms of a lover beckoning us to an early demise. The French first coined the phrase l'appel du vide which is the feeling of wondering what it would be like to jump in front of a truck or to jump off a cliff. It translates into English as the ‘call of the void’. The phenomenon is actually a positive affirmation that by not answering the call you unequivocally choose life.”

Get lost in the mayhem below:



The track is taken from the band's upcoming album 'VENGEANCE' which is set for release on October 15.

It will also features 'Start The Fire' which sounds like this:



And 'Long Way Home':
