Canadian band The Strumbellas followed up their hit single “Spirits” with a new visual for “We Don’t Know” off their latest studio album Hope.
The video finds the band exiting the stage after a performance in their hometown of Toronto, Ontario. As they sit backstage, things warp into a video game of sorts as band members spar one-on-one with each other while everyone else sits around and watches.
Like their video for “Spirits,” The Strumbellas show off their love of colorful costumes, each taking on a video game persona in order to beat their rival. The more fights they complete, the more their world transforms into a video game until “Lord Doom” shows up. His mission is to destroy The Strumbellas, and so instead of fighting each other, they band together (get it, band) and transform into Captain Strumbella in order to defeat their nemesis.
The clip show a true affinity for the classic video game Street Fighter II.
Once they finish fighting evil, The Strumbellas will be heading out on the road for their fall U.S. tour. The band sets out September 20 in San Francisco, California, and wraps up October 30 in Boston, Massachusetts.
