Outlaw industrial band CHMCL STR8JCKT are pleased to announce the release of their new video, “Black Vulture.” The single appears on the band’s latest release, “Wrtchd Thngs.”
For fans of: KMFDM, MInistry & My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult.
“Black Vulture” is the story of a guy who did something terrible….he killed his lover. Then he wanders down to the local distillery and dulls the pain of what he’d just done with vodka. My hometown of Branchville, NJ has a great distillery in it, Milk Street Distillery. They make “Black Vulture Vodka”….They even serve a drink called the “Chmcl Str8jckt”! So it was fun to write them into the song.
During the first half of the song, the main character is comparing The Vulture (vodka) to religion…..basically, saying that the Vulture IS Jesus/religion because it gives comfort and hope. In the second half the main character is in a drunk frenzy….feeling god-like and quite manic! He is a terrible character. “
– Kevin Snell (Chmcl Str8jckt)
The “Black Vulture” video was filmed at the Milk Street Distillery and directed by Katana Visuals.
