THE UGLY KINGS Release New Video For ‘Black Widow’

Melbourne rockers The Ugly Kings have just released a video for Black Widow from their acclaimed debut album, 2018’s ‘Darkness Is My Home’

The band comment: “Black Widow is about seduction and manipulation. It’s about someone you love to hate and hate to love. It’s about someone that pulls you in with promises of affection and uses that to pull your strings. Ultimately the message is uplifting as it’s about having the strength to walk away from something so toxic and stand on your own two feet again.” 

The videos feature dancer, Ferri Maya comments;  “Black widow has been a part of my life for nearly 2 years. It has developed into one of my strongest performances pieces over this time. How you see Black Widow now, won’t be what you’ll see by the end of the year. It has transformed from the artists thoughts and musicians feel, to the performers interpretation; and I’ve loved every minute of it. Performing to every beat, lyric and riff. My performance of Black widow has and still is being mentored by one of the greatest burlesque performers of all, Ginger Lee Valentine. 

This performance has won me the title of Miss Burlesque Melbourne and will be appearing at Miss Burlesque Australia, Perth international burlesque festival and New York Burlesque festival. Not only am I grateful for these opportunities, but I am grateful to the band who has been with me every step of the way, with words of encouragement and belief. I have danced with the Ugly Kings for as long as they’ve been a band. Travelling worldwide with their songs as my backing track. I am so proud of them and all they have achieved. I am so excited to see this collaboration of Black Widow. The first time the performer and musicians vision come to life.”

The Ugly Kings will be taking to the stage THIS Saturday, Aug 10 at
Melbourne’s Gasometer.
