The video for the hot new Go-Go's single, "Unforgiven," was actually shot on a cold, rainy day inside an old house of prayer.
The ladies shot the clip Sunday on Manhattan's Lower East Side at the Angel Orensanz Foundation Center for the Arts, which was originally designed as a synagogue in the 1800s.
Directed by Troy Smith, the video features the quintet performing in the neo-gothic building as well as playing around inside a giant disco ball. It will surface later this month, the band's publicist said.
"Unforgiven," which the Go-Go's co-wrote with Green Day leader Billie Joe Armstrong, has shown steady progress at modern adult-contemporary radio stations, more than doubling in spins every week since its release early last month, according to the industry trade magazine Radio & Records.
The song is the first single from God Bless the Go-Go's, due May 15. It is the first new studio album from the Go-Go's in 17 years since 1984's Talk Show but the group has had several reunions over the years to tour and release best-of collections. Another tour is planned for this summer.
Paul Kolderie and Sean Slade co-produced God Bless the Go-Go's, which will feature the songs "Lala Land," "Unforgiven," "Apology," "Stuck in My Car," "Visions of Nowness," "Here You Are," "Automatic Rainy Day," "Kissing Asphalt," "Insincere," "Superslide," "Throw Me a Curve," "Taking Myself Down" and "Daisy Chain."
