DIFFUSER.FM PREMIERE SPONGE’s ‘COME IN FROM THE RAIN’ MUSIC VIDEO TODAY!
Co-Headlining Tour with SPACEHOG Kicks Off This Week
New York, NY – (December 2, 2013) – In support of the group’s current single “Come In From The Rain”, the members of Detroit-based, gold-certified rock act – Sponge, featuring vocalist Vinnie Dombroski, Billy Adams (drums), Tim Patalan (bass), Kyle Neely and Andy Patalan (guitar), are thrilled to have their music video for the track premiering today at Diffuser.fm.
“The concept was what if Marilyn Monroe did not die of the drug overdose but miraculously survived. She sheds everything about the old life/lifestyle and leaves it all behind (not in a Bubba Ho-tep kinda way),” Dombroski explains. “Pretty ambitious concept to nail down in a video however we thought the concept was something to pursue in a broader sense using a Marilyn Monroe type character who eventually sheds the facade walking away from the trappings of a destructive lifestyle.”
Directed by Steve Greene (SG Creative), the video can be viewed here: http://bit.ly/186pP8L
