On March 26, 1997, 39 members of Heaven’s Gate were found dead, wearing matching dark clothes and Nike sneakers. Their leader, Marshall Applewhite, had convinced them to drink poison, so that they could leave their Earthly bodies and board the spaceship waiting behind the Hale-Bopp comet. Their goal was to enter Heaven. This song was inspired by these events. This was our first scripted music video.
