Khemmis have premiered an animated video created by Costin Chioreanu for new single "House of Cadmus," which appears on the group's upcoming album, Deceiver (out November 19). The clip can be found below.

Vocalist/guitarist Phil Pendergast says of the new song: "'House of Cadmus' represents the lowest emotional point on Deceiver. In it, we explore the seat of our deepest fears, the anchors that we drag behind ourselves for our entire lives. It is also maybe the most important song for me, personally, in our entire catalog. With it, I cut away the chains that have long held me captive and offer an invitation for everyone who hears it to do the same.


"We are all weighed down by some aspect of our lives: addiction, abuse, mental illness, fear, regret, and shame, to name a few. These traumas distort our views of ourselves, of each other, and of the world around us. But these are merely stories we tell ourselves, and no matter how all-encompassing they may feel, these stories cannot define us."
