Almost 6 years after signing a Cessation of Touring agreement, the contract is off the table because a whole new generation of Crüeheads are relentlessly demanding for the band to come back together.

Official film clip – ‘Brain’ feat. Lori

Brain is about the fantasy world you create when you’re in love. Our director, Barun Chatterjee, depicted this perfectly. He begun by sourcing a beautiful art deco property, both gorgeous and secluded. He then hand picked the perfect players to create our dreamscape. The most important being our lead, Ntombi Moyo. We needed someone who could effortlessly command space and portray the motions and emotions of true love. Ntombi, apart from being the greatest stylist in the country, is also an up and coming actor. Both fields require attention to detail and versatility of style. It was a no brainer that she could bring our dreams to reality. – Remi
