In This Moment have recently released the video for Sex Metal Barbie from their 2014 effort Black Widow. The video, based around other peoples perceptions of the band was turned into a sarcastic punch in the face to all the ‘haters’.
Frontwoman and director of the video Maria Brink told Loudwire; “Directing it was a liberating experience. When you write music that you are very passionate about, being able to bring the visual aspect of it alive with the music is what ties everything together. Sex Metal Barbie is all about rising above hate. I used other people’s hatred to create this song and concepts. I really wanted this video to convey that other people’s perceptions of us are just their own twisted and warped views. I wanted a sarcastic and delusional visual to bring this video alive.”
She continues; “I want to thank all the people who feel compelled to express negativity toward us for all the inspiration. I couldn’t have done it without them.”
The band toured the UK back in March and have recently been nominated for Best Live Band at the 2015 Kerrang! Awards. You can pick up a copy of Black Widow including the tracks Sick Like Me and Big Bad Wolf via Amazon, iTunes and In This Moment’s Website.
