Tom Waits, ‘Hell Broke Luce’ – New Video

Subscribe to on

Tom Waits has premiered a visually-stunning new video for ‘Hell Broke Luce,’ a military march of a war tale featured on last year’s ‘Bad as Me’ album. A press release features a note from Waits about the clip, which is full of disturbing imagery that matches the song’s battle-worn lyrics.

It reads:

As most of you guessed, it’s a tour…a tour de force!Matt Mahurin has created an apocalyptic war dream to accompany the song HELL BROKE LUCE. Kathleen and I envisioned it as an enlightened drill sergeant yelling the hard truths of war to a brand new batch of recruits. The video grew from the gnawing image of a soldier pulling his home, through a battlefield, at the end of a rope.

I think you will agree, it’s uplifting and fun.

He’s kidding with that “uplifting and fun” nonsense, but it is certainly a video you need to watch.
