10.31.17: MARK LANEGAN BAND Shares ‘Emperor’ Video
2017 has been another excellent year for Mark Lanegan Band. With career-best reviews greeting his tenth album Gargoyle back in April, followed by last month’s Still Life With Roses remix EP, and now heading out on an extensive European tour, Lanegan has today shared a video for album highlight “Emperor”.
Director Joshua Lipworth says of the video: “The story is based on the desperate final hours of a dictator ousted by his own people and loosely based on the fall of Ceausescu, the Romanian dictator. Firmly in denial of his desperate circumstance, he marches steadfastly towards his tragic demise. His grip on reality faltering with every step. The video was shot in 16mm on location in Estonia. Predominantly in the suburbs of Tallin and the deserted underwater soviet prison camp of Rummu.”

Mark Lanegan Band – Beehive
Grizzled rock veteran Mark Lanegan and his Mark Lanegan Band are coming back next month with the new album Gargoyle, which features contributions from old Lanegan confederates like Josh Homme and Greg Dulli. We’ve posted lead single “Nocturne,” and now we get to hear the huge, surging new song “Beehive.” Compared to the wizened post-blues that Lanegan usually makes these days, this one is a relatively straightforward riff-rocker, one with a huge melody that recalls Lanegan’s Screaming Trees days. It’s also a grand and catchy and anthemic rock song, the type they don’t make very often anymore. I very much recommend clicking play below.
