‘Department of Blood’ follows the lead single, ‘Careful Let’s Sleepwalk’ and explores a variety of themes in the 3-and-a-half-minute runtime.

Brooklyn-based band Activity have released the follow-up to their lead single from their upcoming album Spirit In The Room. The track explores various themes, most notably the longing and hopelessness that come with facing a monumental loss and the feeling of powerlessness.

The track arrives alongside a chilling and unsettling video (below) directed by singer Johnson while working a highly secretive and bizarre contract job on Staten Island.

“I was working in a dank, cold parking garage in the middle of winter on a mysterious electronics project that I’m not supposed to talk about, and still don’t really understand,” he recalls. “It was freezing in there and I was also having the worst anxiety and depression I’d had in my adult life, so I felt insane every day. In the trash there, I found these little miniature figures and started taking these grotesque closeups of them.”

‘Department of Blood’ is out now. Spirit In The Room is out August 4th via Western Vinyl.
