Mushroomhead share dark and unsettling video for Devils Be Damned

Mushroomhead have released a video for their track Devils Be Damned.

The unsettling promo was filmed at the Ohio State Reformatory, better knows as Shawshank Prison – the main setting for classic 1994 movie The Shawshank Redemption, which starred Morgan Freeman and Tim Robbins.

The video has been released to mark the launch of their DVD Volume III, which arrived earlier today via Megaforce Records and includes “stunning new music videos, backstage antics, and exclusive never-seen-before content.”

Drummer and founding member Steve "Skinny" Felton says: “Devils Be Damned was filmed at the Mansfield Prison which is also the prison where the movie The Shawshank Redemption was filmed. So there’s a cool backstory there. 

“There’s a scene in the video where the little girl is crawling through the tunnel – that’s the same tunnel that Tim Robbins crawled through at the end of the movie – you know, the whole ‘Andy Dufresne, who crawled through a river of shit and came out clean on the other side’ line. That’s the same tunnel she crawled through.”

Mushroomhead will kick off their Summer Of Screams tour tonight at the Emerson Theater in Indianapolis. Find a full list of tour dates below.
