Mike Patton et sa bande de Mr Bungle partagent un nouveau clip de leur EP réenregistré “The Raging Wrath of the Easter Bunny Demo” prévu le 30 Octobre. Le réalisateur ayant décidé de reprendre l’esthétique mi-80 puisque l’EP date de cette période (salut les boomers). À noter que le clip a été tourné par Derek Cianfrance à l’orgine de l’excellent film “A Place Beyond The Pines” avec Ryan Gosling.
“So, 30 years later, when I got a call from Mike Patton asking me to direct a music video for one of the songs on their new album, The Raging Wrath of the Easter Bunny Demo, I questioned whether my life was really a dream. I informed Mike that I had never directed a music video before, but he wasn’t dissuaded. I listened to the album and asked if I could work with the song ‘Sudden Death’. It reminded me of the feelings of angst I carried throughout my youth while growing up in the shadow of a looming, forbidding thermonuclear war. I decided I could make a short film (well, not so short — the song is almost 8 min!) about these fears that haunted me. Since the song was written in the mid-’80s, I determined that the video should feel like it was made during that time and imagined it as some sort of rediscovered relic. Shooting during a global pandemic proved a fitting backdrop to the malaise of the song. It also presented a unique challenge as I was too nervous to work with actors — so I had to come up with another solution. Making this video with a small team of trusted collaborators, and working with my life-long heroes, was nothing short of a total dream come true.”
