Suspenders and suspense fill the screen as things get strange in the new video from The Dead South.  On the heels of their debut at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, the Canadian four-piece has released ‘Yours to Keep’ from their new album ‘Snakes and Chains’.   The video was directed by Two Brothers, the team behind the viral sensation ‘In Hell I’ll Be in Good Company’.   The group is seen in surreal circumstances as playing cards float in the air, recurring characters either fistfight or dance with the band, and a uniformed dictator uses the song lyrics as a seeming call to action.   The song is a continuation of The Dead South’s signature sound that is at once old-timey and thoroughly modern americana.
