Music video filmed inside the Ohio State Reformatory, a.k.a. Shawshank Prison
Influential Cleveland, Ohio-based metal pioneers MUSHROOMHEAD release their highly-anticipated upcoming DVD, VOLUME III – a follow up to the widely-acclaimed DVD’s Volume 1 (2005) and Volume 2 (2008) – today, August 17, 2018. The DVD features over 90 minutes of new material – including stunning new music videos, backstage antics, and exclusive never-seen-before content.
Following up on their Evil Dead inspired music video for the alternate version of their track, “We Are The Truth” (which has garnered over 1.8 million views since it’s release in early July), MUSHROOMHEAD is thrilled to reveal another new music video, this time “Devils Be Damned”:
“Devils Be Damned” is cut from VOLUME III and their most recent and successful charting album, The Righteous & The Butterfly which debuted at #20 on the Billboard Top 200, #1 on the Billboard Independent Chart, and #1 on the Billboard Hard Rock Chart.
The video is a complete DIY production filmed on location at the historic Ohio State Reformatory in Mansfield, Ohio – known as one of the most haunted buildings in the country and the main setting of the 1994 cinematic classic, The Shawshank Redemption, starring Hollywood legends Morgan Freeman and Tim Robbins.
In a recent interview with Ultimate Guitar, MUSHROOMHEAD producer/drummer/founder Steve “Skinny” Felton explained, “‘Devils Be Damned’ [was filmed at] the Mansfield Prison [Ohio State Reformatory] which is also the prison where the movie The Shawshank Redemption was filmed. So there’s a cool backstory there. There’s a scene [in the video] where the little girl is crawling through the tunnel – that’s the same tunnel that Tim Robbins crawled through at the end of the movie – you know, the whole ‘Andy Dufresne – who crawled through a river of shit and came out clean on the other side.’ line – that’s the same tunnel she crawled through.”
