LIONESS is releasing two creepy new videos–and just in time for Halloween. The Kevin Hegge (She Said Boom – Fifth Column documentary)-directed video for the band’s new single, “Temptation”, premieres today (October 10th). Hegge explains that the original idea for the edgy “Temptation” short came out of a conversation he had had with Lioness frontwoman Vanessa Kathleen. He explains: “It’s a exercise in discovering the strange spot shared by pain and pleasure as a metaphor for love.” Vanessa, who also produced the video, added, “The character I play is kind of a deviant, a black widow spider type who lures men into her web and trusses them up. None of them try to flee as she has cast a spell on them, or they’re masochists.” The video was shot in an abandoned house in Toronto’s Roncesvalles area and is inspired by 1970s suspense and horror cinema.

Watch for the second video for “The Night” to premiere on October 24th. That video is a send-up to old Grindhouse B-Grade movie trailers. It doubles as a sketch for a feature Director Jeff Scheven is developing about a group of friends that go up to an old cabin for a weekend of fun. One by one, an unknown creature hunts them down.
