Music Video of the Day: Mesa Cosa “Church of the Snake” (2017)

Melbourne’s five-(sometimes six-sometimes seven)-piece Mesa Cosa return with a call to their snake worshipping cult of destruction, the ‘Church of the Snake’. The inimitable group descend into darkness and explore an underworld full of occult rituals in their latest offering, obliterating the listener with their trademark psych-punk.

Don’t worry, there’s no *actual* footage of them in the underworld; it’s all mind bending animation by Jase Harper. Mixed by King Gizzard‘s own Stu McKenzie, the group are sounding better than ever, and are definitely leaving us wanting the Kool-Aid that is their upcoming album El Es Demons.

Watch below, at your own peril. Mesa Cosa guarantee “eternal salvation or triple your money back, this is not a joke.”

Mesa Cosa are playing two single launch shows, in Melbourne and Sydney. Can’t deny or confirm any Church of the Snake rituals at either show.
