Dead Letters lyrics video
Instead of giving you just a snippet of audio, we decided to give you a "lyric video" for a FULL song also showcasing some of the exquisite artwork to be found inside the album. We hope you will enjoy one of many diverse and differerent sides found on Dead End Kings by starting off with 'Dead Letters', one the most heavy and proggressive songs to be found on the album and certainly a new live classic. Crank it a couple (or hundred) of times and then let us know what you think!
