Freya Wilcox & The Howl premiere (nsfw) video for “Skin”

Freya Wilcox & The Howl debuted their new risqué video for “Skin,” off their debut album, which will be released on June 2nd.

Wilcox had this to say about the video: “It’s a graphic ode to the dynamic thrill and powerlessness of sex and love addiction (or as most people will find more digestible, ‘falling in love’), the filming of which included hours of real pain and getting stabbed in the ass with a switchblade (accidentally), while hanging half naked from a basement ceiling. Some will call it porn, I’ll call it performance art – it’s a lot less painful than the real deal regardless.”

You can check out the video below and be grateful no one is stabbing you in the ass with a switchblade. If that is happening, you should probably tell a grown-up (so, not me).
