Check it out now...

Salem have shared the video for new track 'Throat'.

The duo - formed around Creeper frontman Will Gould and close friend Matt Reynolds - recently released their debut EP, a self-titled blast of chilling songwriting.

EP highlight 'Throat' plays with the idea pleasure, pain, and release, with Will Gould crooning “so wrap your hands around my throat / and hurt me like you love me girl...”

The full video channels cult horror flick Misery, and features the frontman strapped to a bed.

A mysterious woman - in reality his real-life girlfriend - features, while Reynolds plays an SBI agent (Salem Bureau of Investigations) who is attempting to track Gould down.

Will Gould explains: "Being that ‘Throat’ is a song about obsession, we thought it would be a cool idea to base the video for the song loosely around Stephen King’s book ‘Misery’."

"We once again brought in Olli Appleyard of Static Dress to make the film, but we changed a few details in the story to better fit SALEM. The key two being that it now takes place in a boudoir with padded walls, and that at the end of our story, everyone dies."

Tune in now.
