The song "Serpent Society" can be seen below.
Wednesday stated about the track: "'Serpent Society' is one of my favorite tracks on the whole album. Lyrically, it tells a story about how all religions are manufactured by the same source and are all the same, whether you are worshipping god or the devil. All of this, while a race of shapeshifting reptilian beings are running and controlling the people on earth."
Regarding the inspiration to write a concept album about intergalactic forces, UFOs and aliens, Wednesday said: "I'd become really intrigued with forbidden history books, UFOs, religions/astrotheology, and all sorts of conspiracy theories over the past few years. The subject matter so bizarre and weird. I've seen things in the skies as a kid that were not normal airplanes or shooting stars — objects doing manoeuvres that normal fossil fuel crafts couldn't do. I'm not saying that was aliens, but it could've been top secret government crafts being tested. I've also seen some things in recent years that were definitely not any technology that we supposedly have on earth. I read about so many things I'd never heard of before in the wake of this and it really inspired me to write about it, but to tell it via my own weird concept album."
Wednesday 13 will embark on a UK tour in March.
