Stoner-rock outfit Fuzz shared “Mirror”, the final single to appeared on their forthcoming third studio album—appropriately titled III—due out this Friday. The eerie video which arrives just in time for Halloween was directed by Joshua Erkman, and features homages to the body horror work of David Cronenberg. The horror-inspired video finds Fuzz back in the fold that made them a highlight of the stoner metal genre in the 2010s, as well as launched Segall into indie prominence.

Combining the heavy-hitting sounds that fans have been clamouring after for five years with the grotesque imagery of body horror puts an exclamation point on Fuzz’s statement: We Are Back.This latest track follows previously-released III singles “Spit” and “Returning”. This new album is the first from the Ty Segall-led project in five years, and was set to be accompanied by the group’s first North American tour. Unfortunately, COVID-19 laid waste to those plans, but Fuzz still plans to head out on the road this winter.

Director Joshua Erkman said of his involvement in the projectIn an abstract way I wanted to incorporate some of the thoughts that have been swimming around in my head about isolation; it’s pretty hard to avoid thinking about that these days. Making the video was an exciting challenge given our current circumstances – how do you shoot a rock ‘n’ roll band performing in a safe, but visually interesting way? In this case the answer was myself and the cinematographer, Star Rosencrans, dragging the band out to the middle of the desert with just a camera, some optical filters, and the bare minimum amount of lights needed.
