Red Hot Chili Peppers ‘Goodbye Angels’ video is another cool Thoranna Sigurdardottir directed piece

Thoranna Sigurdardottir has directed another cool video for the Red Hot Chili Peppers — this time it’s ‘Goodbye Angels

Veteran American alternative rock band Red Hot Chili Peppers has released the official video for ‘Goodbye Angels‘, the fourth single from their eleventh studio album The Getaway.

The video was shot during a Chili Peppers’ concert in Atlanta, Georgia on April 14th, 2017, and features a girl, the ‘angel’ of the video, sneaking into the band’s concert, stealing beer, doing and stealing drugs in the venue’s bathroom, and then dancing to the band’s ‘Goodbye Angels‘ while high. It ends with the girl standing on the now-empty-of-the-band stage and crying.

Ah the transgressions and high emotions of youth!

And, if you look closely at the Chili Peppers video for ‘Goodbye Angels‘, you may see yourself in it if you were at that concert.

Because, as Chili Peppers’ drummer Chad Smith told fans on Twitter the band would when he asked them to ‘wear something colorful, they did include crowd shots and individual fans in the video footage.

Watch the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ official video for ‘Goodbye Angels‘ below. It was directed by Icelandic film director Thoranna Sigurdardottir. She also wrote and directed the video for Chili Peppers’ ‘Go Robot. Both are equally cool.

And, while you’re watching this one, why not refresh your memory about other cool videos from the band’s The Getaway with ‘Sick Love‘, illustrated and directed by another female director Beth Jeans Houghton.


Thanks guys for supporting women directors. Much appreciated.
