Disclosure's New Video Pulled Due to Drug References
Published Oct 11, 2013Danceable UK duo Disclosure are one of the success stories of 2013, but the group have suffered a setback, as their freshly unveiled music video for London Grammar-featuring "Help Me Lose My Mind" has been removed from the internet due to its depiction of drug use.
The clip, in support of their debut album Settle, was only online briefly this morning (October 11) — so briefly, in fact, that we didn't have time to see it. In regards to its removal, Disclosure's label, PMR Records, issued the following statement:
The video for Disclosure's new single "Help Me Lose My Mind" was revealed this morning and as with previous Disclosure videos, it was about the connection of people having a good time, something that Disclosure want associated with their music and what we hope people have done when they've seen the band live or while listening to their music. Unfortunately the video has received a few comments referencing the use of drugs within the video.
PMR feel very strongly against the glamorization of drugs in any capacity and as such we have made the decision to remove the video.
Disclosure haven't yet commented on the video's removal, so we're not quite sure if they're on board with the label's decision to pull it from the internet. It remains to be seen whether the video will be edited so as to not include dress references.
