New Mike Viola: Drug Rug

Video: Mike Viola – “Drug Rug”

Mike Viola - Drug Rug [OFFICIAL VIDEO]

Directed by Caitlin Gerard. From Godmuffin, out December 11 on Good Morning Monkey/Grand Phony.

It’s Halloween season and things are getting spooky. All Hallows’ Eve is time of the year dedicated to remembering the dead and a lot of our traditions come out of the Gaelic pagan festival Samhain, when people went door to door in disguise performing party tricks in exchange for food.

Winter is coming. We’re all going to die.

But what if we were vampires? Would we be lonely? Would we break into Mandy Moore’s pool to have a leisurely swim? Mike Viola suggests exactly that. And heaven knows we could all use a little connection these days.

In a rug full of drugs and with nowhere to go
Only the dead get to heaven
Here on earth we just get lost
At least until this stuff wears off

Do what you gotta do to stay alive, people. Hopefully that doesn’t entail sucking people’s blood, but hey. Desperate times.

New Gerard Way video: Baby You’re A Haunted House

Video: Gerard Way – “Baby You’re A Haunted House”

Gerard Way - Baby You're A Haunted House [Official Lyric Video]

Directed by Claire Marie Vogel. Single out now on Reprise.

I didn’t realize that this was the guy from My Chemical Romance until after I heard it. I just knew that Claire Marie Vogel (who has worked with my favorite band the Regrettes) directed the video. It’s a good dumb garage song with crunchy guitars that sound like early Weezer and lyrics that fit the season.
