The video arrived last week amidst a lot of speculation that Waits was about to announce a tour. However, various teasers posted by the great man were, as it turned out, for the Hell Broke Luce video - where Mahurin's famous distressed film style is combined with After Effects to create what Waits himself has described as "an apocalyptic war dream".

"Kathleen [Brennan, Waits' wife and artistic collaborator] and I envisioned it as an enlightened drill sergeant yelling the hard truths of war to a brand new batch of recruits," Waits continued, in his announcement accompanying the new promo. "[It] grew from the gnawing image of a soldier pulling his home through a battlefield at the end of a rope. I think you will agree, it's uplifting and fun."
