Exclusive Video: The Making of Reverend Horton Heat's "Let Me Teach You How to Eat"

Today, presents an exclusive behind-the-scenes video featuring the Reverend Horton Heat.

You get to be a fly on the studio wall as bassist Jimbo Wallace and Jim "The Rev" Heath discuss and record their new single, "Let Me Teach You How to Eat." The song is from the band's new album, Rev, which will be released January 21 by Victory Records.

In the clip, the guys also discuss relationships, fine-tuning their craft, finding inspiration and opening the next chapter from the book of the Reverend Horton Heat. The band is rounded out by Scott Churilla on drums, who also appears in the video.

After you've watched the song being recorded, watch it come alive with a little help from some burlesque dancers. Check out the music video for “Let Me Teach You How To Eat” right here.

The album, which was produced by Heath, is the followup to 2009's Laughin' & Cryin' with the Reverend Horton Heat. It features 13 tracks of pure psychobilly mayhem. Rev is available for pre-order HERE.
