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.”
