VELVET REVOLVER: 'She Builds Quick Machines' Video Posted Online

VELVET REVOLVER's video for "She Builds Quick Machines", the first single off the band's upcoming "Libertad" album, has been posted at Yahoo! Music. It can also be seen at YouTube. According to, the clip, which was directed by Dean Karr (MARILYN MANSON, DEFTONES), pits VELVET REVOLVER against a crew of bad men who kidnap a fallen angel — literally a chick with wings who falls like a meteor from high above the Earth, crashing into the desert sand with atomic force. The VR boys use explosives, Molotov cocktails and powerful six-shooters to exterminate the evildoers and rescue the winged woman.

In a recent interview with, VELVET REVOLVER singer Scott Weiland said of the video, "We came up with this idea, and it just sort of coincided with the album idea and title," he said. "It originally started as just a spaghetti Western and then morphed into a combination of a spaghetti Western married to this freedom-fighter concept," with a splash of "City of God" thrown in for kicks. "We spoke with several different directors, and no one could wrap their head around that concept. It was a two-day shoot, and we had no idea if it would look like crap or if it was going to look amazing. We knew it had to be cool, that it had to have a vibe and it couldn't look cheesy. ... And it came out looking badass.

"I've always been such a huge fan of those spaghetti Westerns," continued Weiland, who bears an uncanny resemblance to Clint Eastwood — circa "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly" — in the video. "I always thought it would be cool to do a remake of 'A Fistful of Dollars', so it was kind of a childhood dream to be able to do something like that."

"Libertad" is scheduled for release on July 3.
