Exclusive: GUN premiere cinematic and violent 'Take Me Down' video

GUN have premiered their hard-hitting video for 'Take Me Down' exclusively on Planet Rock.

Directed by Keir Siewert, the cinematic storyboard video follows two masked delinquents – a male and a female couple - as they embark on a crime breaking into a home.

Featuring guns, violence, blood, arson and partial nudity, all soundtracked to the driving rock anthem, the full extent of the female character’s bloody crimes are only revealed near the chilling climax of the video.

Singer Dante Gizzi says: “I think with this latest GUN video we took the conscious decision to stray from the conventional rock video with live band performance.

“We wanted a new challenge with a strong edgy storyline which I’m sure will grasp the viewers attention from the off. The video has a Film Noir feel to it inspired with a blend of True Romance meets Bonnie & Clyde.

“It’s about the ultimate betrayal of a couple who commit a burglary which goes horribly wrong.  We wanted to put a twist in it, in regards to how far they would go for money even if it meant destroying their relationship.”

You can watch it first below (warning; contains partial nudity):


‘Take Me Down’ is lifted from GUN’s excellent latest studio album ‘Favourite Pleasures’, which was released last September via Caroline International.

The Scottish rockers perform on the Planet Rock Main Stage at Ramblin’ Man Fair this Saturday (30th June) appearing alongside the likes of Therapy?, The Cadillac Three, Steel Panther and headliners Mott The Hoople.
