BUTCH WALKER PLAYS CRIME FIGHTING CRUSADER TURNED ROBOT IN NEW VIDEO “PRETTY MELODY”
PANIC! AT THE DISCO’S BRENDON URIE AND SPENCER SMITH PLAY EVIL NINJAS
Butch Walker & The Black Widows Play LA’s El Rey Tonight, Headlining Tour Kicks Off May 4
Today, SPIN.com premiered Butch Walker’s new music video for “Pretty Melody” from his critically acclaimed new album ‘I Liked It Better When You Had No Heart’ (One Haven Music). Watch it here
The video, directed by Shane Valdes, begins with a young girl watching a black and white crime-fighting flick starring Butch Walker as a mustachioed action hero battling an evil ninja and his cronies on a city rooftop. The ninjas come to life, steal the girls’ TV and take it to their hideout. Butch has to morph from TV character to robot in order to escape captivity and save the day. Panic! At The Disco’s Brendon Urie and Spencer Smith guest star as evil ninjas. Urie also starred in a Shane Valdes directed spoof of ‘American Psycho’ that Walker released earlier this year (Watch it here).
After a successful run opening for Train, Butch Walker & The Black Widows will play a headlining show at El Rey in Los Angeles tonight and will kick off their headlining tour in Omaha, NE on May 4. The full band heads to Europe at the end of May to open for P!nk and to play select headlining dates.
