Emperor is the latest track from this year’s Mark Lanegan Band album Gargoyle to get an official video.

“The story is based on the desperate final hours of a dictator ousted by his own people and loosely based on the fall of Ceausescu, the Romanian dictator,” director Joshua Lipworth explains.

“Firmly in denial of his desperate circumstance, he marches steadfastly towards his tragic demise. His grip on reality faltering with every step. The video was shot in 16mm on location in Estonia. Predominantly in the suburbs of Tallin and the deserted underwater soviet prison camp of Rummu.”

The promo is released with a UK and Ireland tour on the horizon.
