VIDEO PREMIERE :: Chamber Band’s “In the Colosseum”
Last month, the nerdy art rockers unveiled their sophomore album, Careers, and subsequently rocked our world with twelve tracks of heartrending adventure. But that wasn’t enough – the fans wanted BLOOD. Well, now you have it. In the video for their cover of Tom Waits’ “In the Colosseum” the band take on the roles of Snub Hub assassins and do the dirty work of a bullied young man with vengeance on his mind. Chamber Band does triple duty portraying not just the killers but also the hipster jocks and latte-swilling yuppies that just wanna keep a young man down.
Scope out the video above (directed by Chamber Band frontman Chris Littler) and if you haven’t yet, get hip to one of the best records of the year, Careers! Want to dive deeper?
