Protest the Hero have released a lyric video for their single “Clarity,” and it’s sure to piss off quite a few fans of Star Wars and Star Trek. Because as many devoted fans of Protest the Hero there are, that’s nothing compared to the level of devotion the two science fiction franchises have. In the video, which seems more than a little inspired by Red Fang’s LARP-tastic video for “Prehistoric Dog,” the clip shows a battle between Star Wars and Star Trek fans while lyrics scrolling at the bottom of the screen allow you to follow along with the words. We don’t want to give the ending away, but one of the factions loses out in a big way. Check it out below.
The band began streaming the song online earlier this month. Protest the Hero will release their new album Volition October 29th. They are set to head out for a North American tour shortly after the release.
