Mr. Bungle Premiere “Sudden Death” Music Video


Mr. Bungle have premiered their music video for their track “Sudden Death“. Derek Cianfrance (‘The Place Beyond The Pines‘, ‘I Know This Much Is True‘) directed the video for the song, which is taken from their “The Raging Wrath Of The Easter Bunny Demo“.

Originally released in 1986, the band reconvened in the studio earlier this year to re-record that outing along with some bonus tracks from the era and put it out late last month. Suicidal Tendencies/ex-Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo and Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian joined them for those sessions.

Mr. Bungle frontman Mike Patton previously scored Cianfrance‘s film ‘The Place Beyond The Pines‘ and commented of once again working with the director:

“When we first worked together, he told me he was a fan, and I didn’t believe him. Years later, he told me he gravitated to the most difficult tunes on Bungle records (‘Dead Goon,’ ‘Merry Go Bye Bye,’ ‘Goodbye Sober Day‘) so him choosing ‘Sudden Death‘ for this iteration of Bungle actually made perfect sense. The least commercial and longest song? That’s where his ears and eyes go.”

Cianfrance has spoken with about his longtime fandom of the band and his approach to the video as well. You can read more about that at the above link.
