Los Angeles industrial rockers Health have dropped an intense and somewhat disturbing video for the song “Sicko.” The song is from forthcoming album Rat Wars, due out December 7. You might recognize parts of “Sicko” because it features samples of the Godflesh tune “Like Rats.”
Director Mynxii White explains:
“Taking inspiration from the haunting imagery of ’90’s music videos by GODFLESH, we put together a video collage of some of our own favorite obscure horror moments of the same time period in one ‘sick’ video for ‘SICKO.’ Some of my best memories are from the stranger indie movies I’d watch in the middle of the night when everyone was sleeping, and it was a lot of fun going back in time to pull moments like a ‘greatest hits’ of all those dark hours of bloody horror.”
Rat Wars was roduced by Stint (Oliver Tree, Demi Lovato) and mixed by Lars Stalfors (SALEM, The Neighbourhood). “Sicko” is the second single the band has released from Rat Wars; the first being the industrial metal tinged track, “Children Of Sorrow.” Rat Wars was written during the most emotionally trying period of the band’s life, the album builds on their chaotic yet re-invigorating pandemic years.
Catch Health live when they hit the road for a tour beginning December 5 in Munich, Germany. The band brings their intense live show to the states March 6 beginning in Ventura, CA and concluding April 4 in Los Angeles, CA.
