Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals Premiere New ‘One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest’ Inspired Music Video

Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals‘ official new music video for their song “Choosing Mental Illness” has made its online premiere streaming below. Anselmo‘s wife Katherine Richardson-Anselmo directed the ‘One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest‘ inspired video, starring Michael St. Michaels (‘The Greasy Strangler‘).

Comments Phillip Anselmo of the video:

“This video is based on one of my favorite films about the harshness of mental illness. Being up close and personal with the struggle, I often feel like R. P. McMurphy, who I play in the clip.

I’ve had a lot of questions about the LP title, ‘Choosing Mental Illness As A Virtue‘ and song title, ‘Choosing Mental Illness,’ but make no mistake, I take mental illness very seriously, especially because it often goes untreated. We’ve taken some extra steps at the end of the video with information that you, or someone close to you might need.

On a lighter note, it’s always a blast to do creative things like the video with my band, crew, and family. Bringing Michael St. Michaels into the fold was like having your favorite wacky uncle over for the holidays! He did a great job as our version of Nurse Ratched and he’s an absolutely lovable and talented guy…go see The Greasy Strangler!”

Steelheart Releases “You Got Me Twisted” Music Video

Steelheart will release new album “Through Worlds Of Stardust” on September 15th via Frontiers Music Srl. A video for album track “You Got Me Twisted” has now come online today and can be seen below. Of the video, Miljenko Matijevic told Ultimate Classic Rock:

“This video was so much fun to make! It is funny, sexy, and rock ‘n roll, as it should be. The scenes in the mansion were filmed at a famous old house which was the home of English film director James Whale during the making of his four classic films: Frankenstein (1931), The Old Dark House (1932), The Invisible Man (1933), and Bride of Frankenstein (1935).

“The performance scenes were filmed in downtown Los Angeles. My film team and the beautiful actress and model, Shonda Mackey did an amazing job on the video! I am truly excited for the world to see it and I hope you all like the video as much as we had fun making it!”
