Betzefer Posts "Can You Hear Me Now?" Video

Betzefer today releases a brand new video for the song "Can You Hear Me Now?" which can be seen below and was directed by Kobie Flashman. The track comes off latest album "The Devil Went Down To The Holy Land."

Avital Tamir (vocals) comments: "Can You Hear Me Now?' Is one of the most aggressive tracks on the album, both musically and lyrically - yet it's unexplainably joyful. Kobie Flashman did a great job tailoring this video featuring a tap-dancing redneck to a fun song about a man who's contemplating the murder of his wife & kids."
