UPDATE: The video is now playing on YouTube in the UK!
The new video for the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ latest single, Monarchy of Roses, has been released on the official RHCP Youtube channel. Monarchy Of Roses, was directed by Marc Klasfeld and was inspired by the artwork of the artist Raymond Pettibon; it’s a black and white animated video with footage of the band overlaid on the cartoons; here are some screen caps:
