L.S. Dunes—the supergroup which consists of Anthony Green, Frank Iero, Tim Payne, Tucker Rule, and Travis Stever—have issued their epic sci-fi horror-inspired music video for “Grey Veins.”

“Grey Veins” is a creative homage to ’70s Japanese Sci-Fi horror films and comes from the mind of guitarist, Iero. The epic visual masterfully combines elements of fantasy and warfare and was directed by the renowned director David Brodsky, known for his work with acclaimed bands such as August Burns Red, Helmet, and Cannibal Corpse.

In a stroke of creative brilliance across “Grey Veins,” the band members each transform into valiant soldiers thrust into a formidable conflict against insurmountable odds. Embracing their roles, they embark on a mission to wage a miniature war—literally Lego sized—fighting for the very survival of Earth.

“I’ve always said that if I couldn’t be in a band the only other thing I would want to do is to make monster movies,” Iero explains. “It’s been my dream ever since I was little, and it was the thing my dad and I bonded over. From an early age music and monsters is just something that went hand in hand for me. [Japanese film genre] Kaiju is something I have been fascinated by ever since I was a kid and I have always wanted to do an homage to that art form in a music video. I love that L.S. Dunes is such an open-minded and inspiring collective of artists that allowed me to chase that idea and make that dream a reality. ‘Grey Veins’ felt like the perfect song to pair with this concept and so when the time came I knew David and Allie at My Good Eye, our frequent collaborators, were the perfect match to bring this to fruition.”

In addition to their new video, L.S. Dunes recently unveiled an extensive lineup of summer tour dates across North America including several Sad Summer Fest performances.
