Late last year, Faith No More shared the music video for “Separation Anxiety”, which reappropriated footage from the spooky 1955 film Daughter of Horror. Now, for their “Cone of Shame” video — the second visual in support of the band’s comeback album Sol Invictus — Faith No More present their very own mini horror movie.
Directed by Goce Cvetanovski, the Macedonia-set video follows a violent story of betrayal and revenge between a prostitute and her aging pimp. There’s screams galore and deadly weapons are flaunted, all the while soundtracked by “Cone of Shame” as performed by a kitschy restaurant house band.
“This is one of those tracks that had to be a video, really, because it lends itself so much to visual imagery,” bassist Bill Gould explains in a statement. “Goce Cvetanovski, as a director, understood this immediately; he knew exactly what to do with it, and along with an amazing cast, has managed to create something very dark, and beautifully cinematic.”
