Watch David Lynch’s New Music Video for Nine Inch Nails

Earlier this month Nine Inch Nails made their comeback official, after a five year hiatus, with new song “Came Back Haunted.” Today, we have the music video, the latest from David Lynch.

The nightmarish tone won’t be a surprise to Lynch fans, and it certainly matches the NIN aesthetic. Take an apocalyptic ballerina, Hype Williams’ video for “All of the Lights,” and the most terrifying scene from Inland Empire, and you’ve pretty much got “Came Back Haunted.” (Especially if you throw in a dash of Wang Chung.)

Note: The video comes with a seizure warning, so watch at your own discretion.
