Hell Broke Luce – Tom Waits At His Best.

The music video above is for the song Hell Broke Luce from the 2011 album Bad As Me by Tom Waits. The highly politically themed video was put together by Waits and  directed by photographer Matt Mahurin.

Fans have been speculating as to the basis of the song and Waits has indeed hinted that it pertains to the life and death of Jeffrey Lucey, an Iraq war veteran who returned home only to take his own life.
