premiers their new music video for “Back From The Dead” and it just reminds us why we love them so much!

Clearly taking inspiration from a host of zombie pop culture (especially The Walking Dead), the music video begins cinematically with PTSD-affected nightmares of a world infected by a virulent strain of zombie-ism. After flashes of emergency military troops and zombified victims running through otherwise abandoned warehouse corridors, lead singer John Cooper awakens to find himself in the same reality of his dreams. And after a mission for supplies goes wrong, the band must flee a swath of brain-feeding corpse dudes.

Of course, since this is a music video, they have to temporarily halt their escape to perform some rock music for an audience of undead inside a fenced-in steel box that is reminiscent of pay-per-view WWF cage matches. Threateningly, he sings “Light it up, light it up; I’m burnin’” as the rock n’ roll walkers slowly make there way closer to the band. But when backed into a corner, the members of Skillet do what any rational person would do in the post-apocalyptic scenario and start punching zombies, one-by-one, with their bare hands. It is a brutally satisfying climax to a scorcher of a track.
