Experimental rock band Faith No More have released a video for their track “Sunny Side Up.”
The track is the newest single off their album Sol Invictus. Sol Invictus is Faith No More’s first album release since their 1997 Album of the Year.
The official video for “Sunny Side Up,” directed by Joe Lynch and produced by Sarah Elbert, debuted today. However, Faith No More released a different video – a live performance – of the track back in August.
The band has also released a live video for their track “Superhero.”
The official video begins with a shot of an elderly woman walking into a nursing home, slowly, with a walker. The video is filmed in black and white, and takes place in what looks like a performance area in a nursing home. The elderly residents watch a performance from a band that is supposedly an elderly version of Faith No More.
At about two minutes into the video, the viewers see a nurse preparing medicine for the residents. She takes out a vile, which is in color – the first instance of color seen in the video. She puts droplets of this color into the medicine, and as the residents ingest it, color begins to be spread throughout.
The video release serves as the end of the band’s “whirlwind year,” according to a press release. Following a string of shows starting in July, including a performance at Seattle’s Bumbershoot Festival, the band’s final 2015 show will be on Oct. 25 at the Aftershock Festival in Sacramento, Calif.
