U.K. alternative rock group Bastille premiered the music video for its latest single "Of the Night" on Wednesday. In the macabre clip, crime scene victims sing along to classic '90s dance tracks "Rhythm of the Night" and "Rhythm is a Dancer."
As Chart Rigger notes, Bastille originally released the "Of the Night" medley back in February on a mixtape. Now the band's meditative and gloomy take on Corona's "Rhythm of the Night" and Snap!'s "Rhythm is a Dancer" will be released as the next single from the "Bad Blood" album. The record will be re-issued on November 25 in the U.K. as "All This Bad Blood" with "Of the Night" added to the tracklist.
The members of Bastille briefly appear in the "Of the Night" music video, but the real stars are the dead bodies. An officer investigates different crime scenes where the deceased victims lip sync along to lead singer Dan Smith's soulful vocals. "Of the Night" gives new meaning to a bloody good time.
Bastille is currently making moves in the U.S. with the electronic-tinged single "Pompeii." The band's "Bad Blood" album was released stateside earlier this month and it has so far peaked at no. 11 on Billboard's albums chart.
