Directed by Fiona Godivier the band said of the video:
"Here's the 3rd tune from Serfs Up! (which is out Friday) it's called 'When I Leave'.
Video directed by the wonderfully talented, tolerant and visionary Fiona Godivier.
A massive thank you to Ben Edge for his art
direction/pagan wisdom and to everyone else that made it down to the woods and
froze their arses off all day in order to make this masterpiece possible, the
ones who looked like they'd been snorting cue chalk all weekend
