WATCH: Black Lips – ‘Boys In The Wood’
Atlanta-based indie rockers Black Lips announced last month that the follow-up to 2011’s Arabia Mountain, dubbed Underneath the Rainbow, will find its way into the hands of their devoted following this March via Vice Records. They’ve now unleashed the first taste of the album, Boys in the Wood, to coincide with their recently announced North American tour.
The NSFW video was directed by Vice-affiliated filmmaker Matt Swinsky and co-directors the ATL Twins in incredible 4K resolution, and features all sorts of blood, gore, aggravated assault, sex, drugs, and wedgies, truly living up to the themes of the chorus: “When the boys start to drinking / You know it ain’t no good / Ain’t gonna live for tomorrow / You know you never should“.
The video is not unlike Black Lips’ live shows, which at times have included vomiting — mostly as a result of singer-guitarist Cole Alexander‘s medical condition — onstage urination, nudity, fireworks, a live chicken, and the classic flaming guitars. Just don’t say we didn’t warn you about it being NSFW.
