Like most Halloweens, the one depicted in Windhand‘s new video for “Two Urns” starts out with some innocent trick-or-treating and TP’ing houses and winds up in murder. Don’t act like you’ve never been there. The Virginian doom forerunners will head out this week — tomorrow, by golly — on a headlining tour to support their third album, the newly-released Grief’s Infernal Flower (review here), and the timing on a Halloween-themed video is eerily good, what, uh, with… Halloween… coming up — do I really need to explain that?
Point is Windhand have their shit together. The album proved that well enough, and as the five-piece move into headlining bigger stretches in bigger venues, that can only continue to serve them. Starting and ending on the East Coast, the stint alongside Danava and Monolord will make a stop at Night of the Shred on Halloween night, and hits just about every other choice market in the States either before or after, so kudos. They’ve busted their collective ass on the road the last several years to get to this point, and one hopes this tour goes well and leads to more. That’s what the work is for, right? More work? So yeah, keep it rolling.

Headlining North American Tour Kicks Off This Week
Windhand share a new evil video just in time for Halloween. The story goes: It’s Halloween, 1987. Four best friends are out trick-or-treating on their BMXs. Four older bullies in a muscle car have an appetite for something more sinister than candy.
Windhand’s headlining North American Tour kicks off next week with Danava and Monolord. Highlights include NYC’s Gramercy Ballroom, Chicago’s Empty Bottle, LA’s Roxy, San Diego’s Night of the Shred, Fun Fun Fun Fest and more – full list of dates below.
