Sevendust Teams With Skunk Anansie Singer For New Video

While making the rounds in Europe earlier this month, the men of Sevendust hooked up with Skunk Anansie singer Skin and the British brother directing team of Ben and Joe Dempsey to shoot a video for "Licking Cream."

The band set up shop in Munich, Germany for the shoot, which will bring forth the second video from Sevendust's sophomore album "Home." The track sees frontman Lajon Witherspoon share vocals with Skin, and the Skunk Anansie singer will share camera time with Witherspoon as well.

According to a spokesperson for Sevendust, the video will see the group (augmented by Skin) performing on a run-down Munich apartment block to a crowd of "sinister and frenzied" onlookers.

The track is set to be the first single off of "Home" released in Europe, however Sevendust will follow the first U.S. single, "Denial," with the song "Waffle." While "Waffle" will soon hit radio, the "Licking Cream" video is expected to debut in the States in December.
