Slash Feat. Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators Become Puppets In “Driving Rain” Video

Slash Feat. Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators have premiered a new live-action, animated video for their song “Driving Rain.” This track is from the band’s latest album “Living The Dream.”

Slash commented:

“The idea behind doing an animated video for ‘Driving Rain’ is mostly due to the dark subject matter of the song influencing directors to come up with very dramatic, dark and sullen regular live action treatments that weren’t any fun at all (no offense to those guys). So, I wanted to create something that could be tongue-in-cheek and yet still be dark with live-action animation. We’re all big fans of Stoopid Buddy and they came up with a great concept and treatment. We love the video and it came out effin’ brilliant. FYI, no puppets were harmed during the making of this video.”

John Harvatine IV, creative director and co-founder of Stoopid Buddy, added:

“Our whole team at Stoopid Buddy Stoodios was beyond excited to work with Slash, Myles and those hard rocking Conspirators. We had a blast creating a dramatic heart-pounding music video with rag-doll-like rod puppets and adrenaline-filled RC Jeeps. From this moment forward, ‘Driving Rain’ is now the ‘Citizen Kane’ of music videos!”

Terror Premiere “This World Never Wanted Me” Video

Terror have premiered a new video for their new song “This World Never Wanted Me.” This track is from the band’s new album “Total Retaliation,” which will be released on September 28. Scott Vogel commented:

“I think most of us that are drawn to underground music in one way or another feel like they don’t fit in this fucked up place. Whether we were thrown away and left to make it alone, or just constantly told we are not good enough, something told us that these sounds and the energy it creates was a way out and a way to find solace in the darkest times.”
