Watch AFI’s Gloomy, Fan-Made ‘A Deep Slow Panic’ Video

Dark clip delivers dripping blood and Gothic imagery, all in support of this year's 'Burials' LP

By: Theo Salem-Mackall // June 12, 2014

AFI recently held a contest asking fans to submit 45-second video clips, with the promise that several pieces would appear in the official music video for Burials track “A Deep Slow Panic”. In typical fashion for the morose goth-punks, each short could focus on one of four themes: panic, anxiety, collapse, and the loss of self. After receiving thousands of submissions, the band included 25 pieces in the final product. As seen above, the four-minute hodgepodge features shifting geometric patterns, a mysterious body floating in a filthy bathtub, and the kind of shaky camera-work that recalls The Blair Witch Project. Watch the horrifying whole, then find AFI’s summer tour dates below.
