Warbeast have premiered a new music video/horror film for their song “Hitchhiker.” This song is from the band’s latest album “Enter The Arena,“ and the clip features a guest appearance from Ed Neal (“The Texas Chain Saw Massacre”).“Enter The Arena“ is the band’s final album, due to them disbanding as a result of Bruce Corbitt’s esophageal cancer diagnosis.
Corbitt said the following:
“I’ve actually had this idea of using Ed Neal for a music video for a long time. So after we knew for sure that we were going to include a song called “Hitchhiker” on the new Warbeast album. Obviously the timing was right to make this old idea become a new reality.
The lyrics for the song are based on Ed’s character from the original Texas Chain Saw Massacre. But this short film/music video is not related to that movie plot in any way. This is really just a silly script and a band having fun working on our final project together. Ed was a complete professional and great to work with… and we are excited to have him starring in this. But like I said… this film isn’t to be taken serious… so I hope you have as much fun watching it as we had making it.
Thanks to Michael Huebner and 12 Pound Productions for doing a great job filming and editing this video. I also got to give a shout-out to Lee Russell and Gas Monkey Live for allowing us to film the music portion of this film there.”
