With the release of their new record Ours Is Chrome hitting stores last week, recent Noise interview guests Superheaven have just released a brand new music video for their track, “Gushin’ Blood.”
The video, which originally premiered on NPR, showcases Superheaven singer/guitarist Taylor Madison as attempts to cover up a hideous murder.
When asked about the idea behind the new single, Madison revealed that the track comes from a very serious place involving his family – his sister to be exact:
“Well, I wrote the song about a pretty personal thing. My youngest sister has been addicted to heroin for a few years now, and it’s been one of the most difficult things my family has had to deal with. I’ve had to literally chase people away from my house because they were trying to bring drugs to the house while we were trying to keep my sister clean long enough to get to rehab. I know that when it comes down to it, my sister’s addiction is her addiction, but it’s frustrating to have people sort of enabling the situation that you’re trying so hard to remedy.
This song is kind of about a fantasy I’ve had many times; of getting all of those people in a room and torturing them, cutting them up and burying them in the woods. I know it sounds like some psychotic stuff, but I think everyone has thoughts like that, without acting on them. It’s just part of that animalistic nature, where you’d do anything to protect the people you love.”
