Volbeat Unleash ‘Lonesome Rider’ Video
Volbeat are taking the idea of 'Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies' to a new extreme, with the ultimate shady character appearing in their new video for 'Lonesome Rider.' The clip finds a young woman crossing paths with the Grim Reaper out on the Western plains.
The video, written and directed by Plastickid, finds a young woman and her driver carting the coffin of what is presumed to be a dead soldier who is the love of her life across the brutal terrain while trailed in the distance by a darkly cloaked figure. She eventually crosses paths with the reaper, who offers her the chance to reunite with her immortal beloved.
The song is actually a duet for Volbeat, who teamed with the Canadian artist Sarah Blackwood on the track. It follows in the footsteps of such other 'Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies' tracks as 'Cape of Our Hero,' 'The Hangman's Body Count' and 'Lola Montez,' which have all done very well on the rock charts.
