John 5 Making Monsters

John 5 has released his third video this year, with his band The Creatures.  This time he unleashes ‘Making Monsters’, directed by Jonny Coffin and Matt Zane, which features stop-motion sequences.  The video took about six months to make and features several of John 5’s favourite Universal Monsters, including Dracula, Frankenstein, the Creature from the Black Lagoon. There’s also a very sweet tribute to Vampira – the late Maila Nurmi, who some will remember had a small part in John 5’s DVD released a few years ago, The Devil Knows My Name.

The video has been premiered at Guitar World and Guitar Player and will be available to view – along with the other releases from this year – at John-5.com in a few days.

The track is also available to purchase from anywhere that sells music digitally.
