“18th of December” is a song about the high price to pay for following one’s heart, and accepting the consequences of one’s choices. The song taps in to the archetypical restlessness associated with the rambling, roaming life of a musician.

On its surface, the video is a Bonnie & Clyde type bender through the small-towns of Western Canada, shot mainly in a town of 250 people, Mortlach, SK. The Deep Dark Woods are seen playing against type – the usually unassuming musicians transform into a wild, gun-slinging band of outlaws, hunting down two young lovebirds on a crime spree.
