Following the arrival of a snippet, Maroon 5 take fans behind the scenes of their "Misery" music video. It features frontman Adam Levine and his real-life girlfriend Anne Vyalitsyna filming various violent scenes. He is kicked by her through a glass window and flees from her when she holds a missile gun, ready to launch it at him.
Filmed in downtown Los Angeles, the music video is directed by Joseph Kahn. It is going to be premiered this coming Thursday, July 1 on MTV. Although the clip is promised to put the focus on violence instead of sex, still there will be a part when Levine makes out with Vyalitsyna.
"Misery" is released as the lead single of the band's September 21 release "Hands All Over". Along with the other materials in the effort, the song was recorded by the band in Switzerland. "The coolest thing about being [in] Switzerland, we weren't distracted at all. There was nothing to be distracted by, except scenery, which was very beautiful," Levine told MTV.
