Say a prayer for me! Want to get "Plowed" in a new way, thanks to '90s rockers Sponge?
ARTISTdirect has teamed up with Sponge, who had a huge hit in the '90s with "Plowed," to premiere the video for "Fade From View," a new song from the upcoming album Stop the Bleeding, out September 17 via The End Records.
"The video is loosely based on an episode of the tv series The Twilight Zone," frontman Vinnie Dombroski told ARTISTdirect about the song. We love Sponge and we love The Twilight Zone, hence why we were stoked to premiere this clip. Dombroski continued, "In the TV episode, a loud bell would ring and suddenly a character would appear in a dimly lit, undefined space. We took the opposite approach with one of our characters disappearing from the scene. We also wanted to maintain the black and white feel of the '60s TV show."
With that in mind, enjoy the video for "Fade From View." And then maybe dig for the episode, all your enterprising millenials!
To catch you up, these neo alt grungers will issue their seventh full-length studio album next month. Pre-order the album at theomegaorder.com.
Dombroski is a consummate frontman who captivates audiences with his powerful voice, heart-on-his-sleeve lyrics and high-octane stage presence. Sponge have proven to be one of the Motor City's heaviest hitters after gaining international notoriety with their debut album Rotting Piñata. We still heart that record.
Did you love the video for "Fade From View" as much as we did?
