Slaves on Dope Featuring DMC, ‘Script Writer’ – Exclusive Video Premiere
Subscribe to Loudwire on
Slaves on Dope are ready to rock once more. The band has a new album called [HORSE] due on Oct. 7 and they’re teaming up with Loudwire to exclusively bring you the premiere of the video for their song “Script Writer,” which features a guest turn by RUN-DMC legend Darryl “DMC” McDaniels.
The clip, set in a hospital, centers on a man (played by singer Jason Rockman) dealing with his inner demons in his drab environment, occasionally channeling his emotions through the projected existence of DMC. Meanwhile, the other Slaves on Dope band members can be spotted rocking out in the dimly lit white hallways.
Singer Jason Rockman tells us, “Working with Darryl was a dream come true for us. Being RUN-DMC fans since we were kids, he has always been someone we wanted to collaborate with. He came to Montreal prepared and later down his parts in three takes. A true pro. We bonded over our love of comic books and Public Enemy, and he came back in July for the Montreal Comicon, so we shot the video for the song while he was here. We can’t wait for the world to hear what we created!”
The “Script Writer” clip was directed by JP Barcha Charlebois and provides the perfect complement for the anguish going on within the song and the mind of the central character in the video.
As stated, “Script Writer” appears on the [HORSE] album, which is due Oct. 7. The album also includes guest appearances by Mastodon’s Bill Kelliher, Bad Brains vocalist H.R. and The Damn Truth’s Lee-La Baum.
