2016 is shaping up to be a pretty big year for Omar Rodriguez-Lopez. Not only is his newly reformed band At The Drive-In touring after a long hiatus (ICYMI they just one arm scissored the fark out of Splendour In The Grass), he’s also promised us no less than 12 solo albums coming out before year’s end.
The second of the dozen is Corazones, which just dropped this past Friday. Which brings us to the fact that ORL has just unveiled a brand new music video for one of its standout tracks, Running Away, and let’s just say it makes an immediate impact.
Mostly because it features the flower-carrying muso getting pushed/punched/kicked in the face multiple times by an allstar cast, including former Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist John Frusciante:
Melvins icon Buzz Osbourne:
Le Butcherettes singer Teri Gender Bender –
Plus Eva Gardner, artist Aura T-09 and more.
Sidebar: it’s also really cool to hear another side to ORL; Running Away is a refreshingly dreamy up-tempo pop rock number.
Anyway, watch Omar get walloped in the face with petal-scattering blows by some of your favourite rockers in its official video, below.
