Shapely cowgirls straddling children's amusement park rides, sexy punk-rock cheerleaders, evil clowns and disco-dancing robots. Yup, Rob Zombie's working on another music video.
This weekend, Zombie and his henchmen will enter a Los Angeles studio to shoot the video for "Feel So Numb," the first single from the new Zombie album, The Sinister Urge, due November 13 (see "Rob Zombie Shrinks To 18", Sings About Crippletown, Kroovy").
The video will be directed by Zombie and will consist mostly of performance shots combined with the kind of striking and bizarre imagery that's become his trademark, the horror rocker's management said.
Zombie and his bedraggled-looking band will perform in front of a wall of digital monitors displaying high-tech psychedelic imagery, creating a contrast of the primitive and the modern. Occasionally, shots of the band will appear on the monitors as well.
As the video progresses, the viewer's screen will split into multiple images of Zombie and other weird characters such as a masked Mexican wrestler, a group of monsters that imitate Zombie, giant fuzzy animals and the aforementioned cowgirls, cheerleaders, clowns and robots.
For the final chorus, the video will depict the band performing before an energized audience of old-school metalheads, nü-metal freaks, punkers and alt-rockers much like the crowds Zombie will face during an upcoming tour opening for Ozzy Osbourne (see "Ozzy 'Gets Through' Video, Plans Tour With Zombie"). The two will be joined by Mudvayne and possibly one other group, but Zombie's management said dates and venues haven't been finalized.
