Alongside the release of their self-titled third album last Friday, The Neighbourhood has premiered the video for the single “Scary Love“. The clip features the one and only Tommy Wiseau, the star, director and writer of the cult film The Room, which inspired the Oscar-nominated film The Disaster Artist.

Directed by Jennifer Juniper Stratford, the ’80s-sci-fi-inspired clip stars Wiseau as a futuristic bounty hunter in search of his long lost love at a roadside diner.

The Neighbourhood’s new eponymous third album is out now on Columbia Records. Up next, the band is heading to South America for the Lollapalooza festival run in March before setting out on a headlining North American tour that will see the band play 15 shows, including both weekends of Coachella.

The Neighbourhood is Jesse Rutherford (vocals), Jeremy Freedman (guitar), Zach Abels (guitar), Mikey Margott (bass) and Brandon Fried (drums).

Growing up together in the Newbury Park area of Thousand Oaks, California, The Neighbourhood started out in 2011 as a group of friends. Fronted by a then 21 year-old Rutherford, their 2013 debut album, I Love You, and the double-platinum hit single “Sweater Weather” catapulted the band to the top of the pop and alternative charts. “Sweater Weather” emerged as one of the biggest singles of 2013 and The Neighbourhood went on to sell out venues throughout the U.S., Europe, and Russia.

The band’s mixtape #000000 & #FFFFFF proved that they aren’t your average rock band – the mixtape was hosted by hip hop heroes Don Cannon and DJ Drama and featured the likes of YG, Raury, Danny Brown, Dej Loaf, French Montana and Casey Veggies. Wiped Out!,
The Neighbourhood’s sophomore effort, a swirling collection of R&B-infused rock, once again rewrote the rules of what it means to be a rock band in the modern musical landscape. Over the years, The Neighbourhood have proved themselves to be trendsetters through their musical and cultural output, taking The 1975, Travis Scott and Kevin Abstract on their first national tours. Considering the band’s ability to transcend genre it’s easy to wonder, who exactly is The Neighbourhood? Is it really this black and white?
