Jane’s Addiction’s “Underground” Released [VIDEO]
Los Angeles quartet Jane’s Addiction have just released the video for the third single off of their newest album, The Great Escape Artist, which came out last October. “Underground” can be viewed after the jump!
Directed by Robert Hales, the video was shot in LA at the Fais Do-Do club which dates back to the 1920’s. The setting is very “underground,” ambient and mellow, and includes “a cast of vaudevillian characters lurk[ing] around the dark, smoky [club].
JANE’S ADDICTION perform in a Los Angeles brothel built in the 1920s, singer Perry Farrell tells Spinner.com of the concept. There are Siamese Gargoyles, seances, card games and a man in a white fedora who was also on the cover of ‘In Through The Out Door.’ People get made love to and murdered in the backrooms while the band plays on.
It’s sort of juxtaposed in an awesome way, as in the background there’s morbidity and romance happening while on the surface there’s a show going on where everyone is oblivious.
Also stated in the article:
“The Great Escape Artist” sold around 24,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 12 on The Billboard 200 chart.
On Friday, January 27, Playboy.com will feature an exclusive explicit edition of the video at 10 am EST. I can just imagine what that one will be like!
What do you think of the video?
