Happy Halloween weekend!
Directed by Proenza Schoulder's art director, Alejandro Cardenas, "Violent Sensation Descends" by the Violens is inspired by the italo-horror films of the 70s. Just the thing to get you in the mood for some dark and sinister fun for the weekend.

Violens upcoming debut Amoral will be out Nov. 9th. Get it.

and empty was the sky.”
