Official press release:

World-renowned heavy metal power trio High On Fire has premiered a new music video for the song "The Black Plot." Created by Skinner and Hey Beautiful Jerk, "The Black Plot" video, which made its broadcast debut on Adult Swim, is an animated tour de force and a wild psychedelic fantasy epic. "The Black Plot" is taken from High On Fire's latest album, Luminiferous.

"I wanted to make an animated short film with Hey Beautiful Jerk, I just didn't know how completely crazy it would get," says Skinner. "At first I thought we should do a real simple story with action fights to wear down the timing a little bit. But then I thought, fuck it, here's a super complicated story with a million characters and it's off the wall crazy and shit. Wanna do it?"

"This has definitely been the most challenging and the most rewarding project in the history of Hey Beautiful Jerk," adds the team of Mark Szumski and Gina Niespodziani. "Creatively, we did not make many concessions and we really pushed ourselves to see how far we could take this thing. It worked."
