Napalm Death released their video for their single “Dear Slum Landlord.” The video was directed by Costin Chioreanu of Twilight Media and Oliver Barth of Visions In Fear.
Vocalist Mark “Barney” Greenway from Napalm Death commented on the video and the performance of the piece. “Being a very queasy and deliberately monotone kind of song, we felt simplicity was the key with the video for ‘Dear Slum Landlord’,” said Greenway,”It’s simple, desolate, black and white and just that little bit grim, befitting the subject matter of interconnected housing/labour exploitation which does its best to remain hidden from view.” The video carries out the band footage and clips of slave labor to counteract with their revealing display of exploits of defenseless people who have to bow to the powers of the man in charge of their homes and their life, the Slum Landlord.
Napalm Death’s single “Dear Slum Landlord” comes from their fifteenth studio album Apex Predator-Easy Meat. The band will join forces with the Melvins for their six week tour. The tour will start in March at the Observatory in Santa Ana, California.
