Delta Rae Release Day Of The Dead Inspired Music Video

Delta Rae celebrated Halloween with the release of their Day Of The Dead inspired music video for their new single, "Dance In The Graveyards."

It's a song that celebrates death, which has deep meaning to the band, "These past few years have been the first of my life when I've lost people who were really close to me" explains Ian Holljes. "The death of one of my closest friends as well as a mentor with whom I lived with left a really strong impression with me and inspired this song. These people were wonderful parts of my life. For me, they're not resting in peace. They remain vivid, important influences in my life. They still move me, and in so many ways I'm still dancing with their spirits and the memories they left behind. The song reflects both my personal attitude towards dying, but also how I want to remember the people I love who have passed on."

"When it came time to shoot a video for the song, we wanted to pay homage to Dia de los Muertos, the Mexican holiday whose rituals treat death with a similar celebratory feeling as the song -- remembering the dead as vibrant and real -- and create a story where the dead and the living are reunited to dance together once more."
