Rob Zombie Unleashes Chaotic ‘Medication for the Melancholy’ Video
Strap in. It's going to be a bumpy ride, as we watch the brand new video for Rob Zombie's "Medication for the Melancholy." The track comes from Zombie's latest studio album, The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Dispenser.
Eliciting the same vibe as Nine Inch Nails' "March of the Pigs" video a few decades prior, "Medication for the Melancholy" finds Zombie and his band in a room with a rather bland white-walled backdrop, but it works quite well in contrast to the pure chaos and rambunctiousness that the band delivers in the clip. The combination of a blistering performance of the track mixed with some occasionally shaky camera work gives the video the feel as though the viewer is shaken right along with the heaviness and energy of "Medication for the Melancholy."
Zombie is going deep with his latest album. He already hit with the singles "Well, Everybody's F--king in a UFO" and "In the Age of the Consecrated Vampire, We All Get High," while "The Life and Times of a Teenage Rock God" and "The Hideous Exhibitions of a Dedicated Gore Whore" have also garnered attention. The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Dispenser is currently available via Amazon and iTunes.
Rob Zombie is currently back out on tour with Korn, with shows lined up into September. The musician and his band will also play the Riot Fest & Carnival in Chicago in September before jetting off to Europe in October. See his current tour schedule here
