John 5 and The Creatures - comprised of world-renowned guitarist John 5, bassist Ian Ross and drummer Logan Miles Nix - released a brand new music video for the new track “Zoinks!” on January 1st, 2019!

The full video - featuring an innovative blend of classic 2D hand drawn animation, 3D computer generated imagery and a live action performance - clocks in at just over eight minutes. In the tradition of Scooby Doo and Groovie Goolies, the video is written and directed by Disney animator Brett Boggs (Frozen, Wreck-It Ralph), with live footage shot by Matt Zane. Watch the full video below and download & stream the track here.

As previously announced, the video features a cameo from Nikki Sixx voice acting as himself, as well as additional voice acting from Susan Olsen (known for her role as Cindy Brady on The Brady Bunch), and Fred Coury. Coury also is credited for scoring the video alongside John 5.
 
Just like 2017’s “Season of the Witch”, “Invasion” - produced and mixed by Barry Pointer and scheduled for release during the summer of 2019 - will be entirely released via a series of music videos. Now that “Zoinks!” has been unleashed to the world, John 5 is announcing the release dates for his next two music videos.
 
John 5 adds that his new album will feature a very special guest. He says: “My new album will be out this coming summer, and will feature a very secret, special guest that I will reveal in the coming weeks. Up first, on February 1, we’ll release the next music video for the track "Crank It". Then, on March 1, we’ll release the video sequel to "Zoinks!", for the track entitled "I Am John 5". This video, like "Zoinks!", will also be animated and directed by Brett Boggs”.
 
John 5 adds that the “Crank It” video is directed by Israel Perez and produced by Nicole Hatley, with art direction by Cody Varona. Wardrobe and masks are provided by Forgotten Saints LA, with additional masks by Scott Blake.
 
Stay tuned for more details on the new music videos and new album, coming soon.
