Elizabeth II, Rope Sting Angel Official Video

Rope Sting Angel is about addiction and confusion- wondering why others see good in you while you only see the misery you’ve become in the mirror through what feels like self inflicted mental and physical pain. Overcoming said addiction will lead to what feels like rebirth- a new life. In the video, the main character finds herself dealing with alcoholism. She looses herself to the bottom of the glass, and eventually finds herself dancing with death himself. Eventually, she shatters the unhappy mirror image and glasses that caused her so much suffering, allowing her to start a fresh new life.

The band explains that they have spent many shows opening for touring bands that traveled through D.C. “We made music and then venues started to open again,” Sheehan says. Rather than having the “typical grungy” D.C. band experience, they uniquely went straight to club shows.
