Heartless Bastards Take On “The Wizard Of Oz” In New Video For “Marathon”


Rolling Stone has premiered the new music video for Heartless Bastards single, “Marathon,” off their widely acclaimed 2012 record, Arrow (Partisan Records).  With Halloween rapidly approaching, the video finds the band indulging in the holiday spirit, with an homage to The Wizard Of Oz.  In lieu of a twister or hot air balloon, the costumed Bastards travel by vintage AMC Pacer, racing to find their way home (Austin, not Kansas).  The song builds slowly to a grand crescendo, with Erika Wennerstrom’s potent, pleading vocals as the scorching centerpiece.
