Wavves have released a fired-up, new video for latest track, ‘Way Too Much’. Directed by Jack Wagner, the offering was filmed at an event put on by the L.A. wrestling promotion company, Underground Empire.
Envisage an intense death match, heaps of table slamming and lashings of barbed wire. Yes, it’s as brutal as it sounds.
A die-hard wrestling fan, frontman Nathan Williams recently opened up to Rolling Stones about the release.
“I have wrestling parties at my house every Monday and Thursday for Raw and SmackDown; we’ll barbecue and watch. I’ve been a fan for 20 years now – but the UEW event, it was crazy. They had a baseball bat with duct tape wrapped around it, and thumbtacks stuck in there, and they were hitting each other in the head with it,” he said.
“They were telling you seconds before, ‘Get the fuck out of the way, because someone’s about to be tossed through all of the chairs you were just sitting in.’ And then when you’d set your chair back up again, there’d be a bloody handprint on it,” he added.
