Premiere new video for ‘The Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie’
Special live album performance will be screened live to ODEON cinemas nationwide
Multi-platinum, Grammy Award-winning rock band Red Hot Chili Peppers have unveiled the video for their current single ‘The Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie’. Directed by Marc Klasfeld who has previously helmed clips for Foo Fighters and Biffy Clyro, the video sees the band – singer Anthony Kiedis, bassist Flea, drummer Chad Smith and guitarist Josh Klinghoffer – performing the song on a rooftop building adjacent to Venice Beach.
‘The Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie’ is the first single to be taken from their tenth studio album ‘I’m With You’ which will be released on August 29th. Recorded at East West In Los Angeles and Shangri–la in Malibu, CA, ‘I’m With You’ was produced by Rick Rubin, who has produced the band’s previous five albums, 2006’s ‘Stadium Arcadium’, 2002’s ‘By The Way’, 1999’s ‘Californication’, 1995’s ‘One Hot Minute’, and 1991’s ‘Blood Sugar Sex Magik’. The album was mixed by Andrew Scheps and Greg Fidelman.
