LA Guns have released a comic book-inspired lyric video for their new track The Flood’s The Fault Of The Rain.

It’s been lifted from the band’s latest album The Missing Piece which launched earlier this month and sees the reunion of vocalist Phil Lewis and guitarist Tracii Guns.

They’re joined on the album by bassist Johnny Martin, guitarist Michael Grant and drummer Shane Fitzgibbon.

Lewis tells Loudwire: “I am incredibly proud of the video for The Flood’s The Fault Of The Rain. Director Wayne Joyner and animator Bill Bronson created a dark, powerful, and moving visual of one woman’s fight against abuse – a topic that unfortunately continues to be a reality.”

Guns adds: “It had to portray the strength of a woman scorned in the darkest possible way because the reality of abuse is incredibly dark and I am very pleased with imagery that Bill Bronson created to portray the horrible reality.”

LA Guns will hit the road later this month in support of The Missing Piece, with shows planned in the US, UK and mainland Europe.
