Published Apr 23, 2013Though the Dillinger Escape Plan have made a career assaulting audiences with mind-bogglingly precise blasts of tech-metal, the new video for "When I Lost My Bet" is a sloppy state of affairs. However, this has more to do with the blood and guts being flung around in the clip than the band themselves.
As you'll see in the player down below, a confusing state of affairs finds the video stars dripping in blood, whether connected mouth to belly button via a flashy organ trail or writhing on the floor. The conceptual art gallery setting also hangs illustrations of swans on a wall with at least one human orifice on it. The track, meanwhile, further displays Dillinger Escape Plan's penchant for discordant blasts, jazzy guitar runs and quick-change arrangements.
"When I Lost My Bet" appears on the band's One of Us Is the Killer album, which drops May 14 through Sumerian Records.
