Who guessed “music video for ‘Hell Broke Luce’” as the answer to Tom Waits’ Tuesday surprise? Because that’s the right answer (and not a new album or tour announcement, unfortunately.) The video certainly lives up to its name, packing intense and violent imagery of the apocalypse. Apparently shark submarines will be a thing then.
Update: Here’s some words on the video from Waits:
“As most of you guessed, it’s a tour…a tour de force!
“Matt Mahurin has created an apocalyptic war dream to accompany the song HELL BROKE LUCE. Kathleen [Brennan] and I envisioned it as an enlightened drill sergeant yelling the hard truths of war to a brand new batch of recruits. The video grew from the gnawing image of a soldier pulling his home, through a battlefield, at the end of a rope.
“I think you will agree, it’s uplifting and fun.”
