[Watch] Tom Waits - "Hell Broke Luce" (Official Video)
The music blogosphere was wrapped up in speculation after Tom Waits gave us this image, and now that August 7th has arrived, what could the surprise be? How about a new music video. No, not a new album, or tour dates. No. It's just a new music video for "Hell Broke Luce". At least it's a visually exciting video, with intense, apocalyptic imagery abound, and not to mention shark submarines! Watch the replay above, and below are some choice words from Waits on the music video:
As most of you guessed, it’s a tour…a tour de force!
Matt Mahurin has created an apocalyptic war dream to accompany the song HELL BROKE LUCE. Kathleen [Brennan] and I envisioned it as an enlightened drill sergeant yelling the hard truths of war to a brand new batch of recruits. The video grew from the gnawing image of a soldier pulling his home, through a battlefield, at the end of a rope.
I think you will agree, it’s uplifting and fun."
Uplifting and fun, perfect descriptors.
