Red Hot Chili Peppers Release 'Dark Necessities' Video


(hennemusic) The Red Hot Chili Peppers have released a music video for the track "Dark Necessities". The song is the lead single from their brand new album "The Getaway," which hit stores today (June 17th).

Directed by actress Olivia Wilde (Vinyl, House), the clip sees the band playing the tune while longboarders Carmen Shafer, Amanda Caloia, Amanda Powell and Noelle Mulligan skate through Los Angeles.

"I pitched them my treatment and they chose it based on the treatment and they gave me a shot and I'll forever be grateful because it served as another type of launch pad for me," Wilde tells ET Online. "I really found it to be a logical way to get your feet wet in directing because it is essentially an exercise in making a silent film. You have to learn how to tell a story without dialogue - that is really essential.

"They are incredibly creative people and they're so good at what they do," she adds. "They're so interesting that you really just have to let them have a free space to play in and set them free and they just do 90 percent of the work for you." Watch the video here.
