"This is 'Unholy Elixir'. A new version of 'Holy Elixir' which you will have encountered on 'The Book Of Traps And Lessons'. After a year of touring we discovered new things about the song and wanted to make a version that reflected those discoveries.
The video is amazing, made by illustrator Natalya Lobanova who also made the 'People's Faces' (Streatham Version) video.
Hope u feel it.
Hope it gives you some fresh energy.
