GWAR filmed a music video for the song "Eight Lock" on Monday, November 27 before their show at the New Orleans House of Blues. The clip was shot in its entirety at the House of Shock haunted house in New Orleans. The video features the band roaming through the House of Shock as if it were Hell and encountering some of its inhabitants along the way. Cast members of the House of Shock also make appearances in the clip.
The House of Shock is a haunted attraction started in 1993 by Philip Anselmo (PANTERA), Ross Karpelman, Jay Gracianette and Steven Joseph as a fun alternative to the average Halloween party. Since then it has grown into a huge event spanning the entire month of October and is rated one of the top ten haunted attractions in the country.
