The Cult have released a video for their new single, “Honey From A Knife.”
Directed by Rick Rodgers and produced by The Cult's Ian Astbury and New York City-based film company Mechanizedmules, the clip was shot on location in the Washington Heights neighborhood of Manhattan on a RED Scarlet camera with Super Speed lenses provided by ARRI.
"Honey From A Knife" - rooted in the seductiveness of addiction - was inspired by the following Buddhist precept, and Astbury says that the accompanying film reveals a "desperate descent into a fractured psyche":
"Wealth and beauty, to a man who will not relinquish them, are like a knife covered with honey which, even before he has had the pleasure of eating the honey, cuts the tongue of the child that licks it."
The Cult kicked off the Canadian leg of their “Choice Of Weapon” tour Wednesday in Vancouver.
