Music video[edit]

The first theatrically styled music video the band ever filmed was made for "M4 (Part II)". It was directed by Ryan Bosworth and came with a limited amount of hard-copy M4 EPs. The video features footage of the band playing interspersed with a visual representation of the song realized by a personified hierarchy of crabs, wherein a single crab wishes to dominate a space of sand dune on a beach. In the end, the single crab becomes the only one left but, reflecting the song's lyrics, the crab is devoured by a bigger predator than itself - a seagull.
