Watch THE CULT's NEW Music Video For "Honey From A Knife" Now!
The Cult premiere their NEW film clip for the track, "Honey From A Knife" on VEVO today. "Honey From A Knife" is the latest single from The Cult's critically acclaimed NEW album, 'Choice of Weapon'.
Directed by Rick Rodgers and produced by The Cult's Ian Astbury and NYC based film company Mechanizedmules, the "Honey From A Knife" film clip was shot on location in the Washington Heights nieghborhood of Manhattan on a RED Scarlet camera with Super Speed lenses provided by ARRI.
"Honey From A Knife," rooted in the seductiveness of addiction, was inspired by the following Buddhist precept, and Ian Astbury states that the accompanying film reveals a "desperate descent into a fractured psyche":
"Wealth and beauty, to a man who will not relinquish them, are like a knife covered with honey which, even before he has had the pleasure of eating the honey, cuts the tongue of the child that licks it".
