Alien Weaponry Premiere “Hatupatu” Music Video


0

With Alien Weaponry‘s sophomore album “Tangaroa” newly making its way out today, September 17th, the band have seen fit to drop a new music video. That song is titled “Hatupatu” and is performed in the indigenous language of te reo Maori.

Speaking of the song and the familial inspiration behind it, drummer Henry de Jong commented:

“The story of ‘Hatupatu‘ is one Lewis and I grew up with – our father was the first person to tell us as children. Having a family connection with it only made creating a song more intriguing for us. Traditionally, Maori legends were passed down through families by re-telling them, not by having them written down in books. It only makes sense for us to be re-telling this story as our tupuna (ancestors) did for generations. We cannot wait to share with the rest of the world.”
