A director's cut of the video for Mushroomhead's eerie new single "Simple Survival" is available at iklipz.com. Chad Calek, an up and coming director who's shot well-received clips for Bleeding Through and Index Case, directed. Between performance footage, some shaky conceptual footage follows a young couple through what appears to be a drunken attempt to infiltrate the band's practice space during a dress rehearsal for its upcoming national tour. Then they get locked in a stairwell, where they seem to get stomach cramps and pass out. But even a light blue tint isn't enough to make it scary. "Chad's good, but the narrative stuff didn't work for us," 'Head drummer-producer Skinny told Scene during a recent interview. "We're going to cut it. The final version will be just us playing." -- D.X. Ferris
