Faith No More Release Video for ‘Separation Anxiety’
Faith No More just released a new music video for "Separation Anxiety." The unnerving clip features footage from the 1955 expressionist horror film Dementia, also known as Daughter of Horror.
"Separation Anxiety" is the third video and fourth overall single from Faith No More's Sol Invictus, their first full-length since releasing Album of the Year in 1997. The moody piece works really well with the footage from Dementia, which is considered one of the weirdest films ever released for cinema audiences.
Faith No More bassist Bill Gould recently spoke about releasing music videos on Mike Patton's own label, Ipecac, versus doing it through a major label. "When you do it with a major, there's nobody that you can talk to about accountability as far as... I don't know… something simple, like, 'You want us to do a video? Who wants us to do a video?' 'Well, the guy down in that office down there.' I never met him before," says Gould.
He went on to add, "In this kind of situation we have here, we know everybody, we can talk to everybody. And it's, like, 'We need this video. We need it for this.' 'Okay. Let's make it happen.' And we know that the content that comes out of is our content, how we want it, and not some guy in an office who thinks they know who we are who's giving this in front of all these people and embarrassing us, for example. Which happened a lot, actually. Even though we had a great label back in the day, but it's an office of people who are not in our band, who [don't] know us as well as we know ourselves."
