Today, we bring to you the music video for “Mystery Line”, see below for the video, a statement from the band and updated tour dates.

“Mystery Line” is a more ambient, grim piece from a darker place than most of the band’s other material. It focuses on the uncanny fact that you never really know what goes on behind your back, even from those you may love and trust the most. The lyrics portray a story of someone entering a graveyard because they know if they locate this certain tomb, they can look through the glass door and see glimpses of their trusted ones doing things behind their back that they wouldn’t dream possible. Whereas the situation is obviously fictitious, it represents something most people wish they could do in order to find the truth about their relationships. The story is portrayed in a few of the music video’s clips as vocalist Tino Valpa makes his way across the rainy 1700’s era Dover, New Hampshire graveyard to eventually walk up to a tomb and stare inside. Thus, the lyrics come to life. - Tino (Singer)
