Jonestown Release 'Mass Extinction Six' Video


(Metal Hammer) Jonestown have released a new music video for their track "Mass Extinction Six." The song comes from the group's debut album "Aokigahara" which was released earlier this year.

"Initially the song was inspired by my frustration at the response on social media to the tragic death of three-year-old Alan Kurdi," vocalist Harley Anderson tells Metal Hammer. "I was angered that people were so unaware of the consequences of Western foreign policy, the impact of structural violence; the fact that such tragedies happen all too often and go ignored. The narrative of the song then moves onto the fact that if we allow these things to happen to others, then eventually we in the developed world will suffer the same fate because of our complacency and apathy to human suffering.

"Our species is currently at a point where we either need our attitudes and actions to change drastically, or inevitably our collective future is only one of extinction and absolute hell as we all embrace individual abandon." Watch the video here.
