Disclosure's "Help Me Lose My Mind" Video Removed For "Glamorizing" Drug Use
Disclosure fans were given a brief taste of the duo’s new video for “Help Me Lose My Mind” this morning, before it was quickly taken down.
Earlier today, Disclosure released the video via a press release. Just hours after the video went live, it was taken down due to receiving a large amount of negative feedback. Following a series of comments on the heavy drug use displayed in the video, Disclosure’s record label, PMR Records, removed the video and posted a statement on their Tumblr page:
“The video for Disclosure’s new single “Help Me Lose My Mind” was revealed this morning and as with previous Disclosure videos, it was about the connection of people having a good time, something that Disclosure want associated with their music and what we hope people have done when they’ve seen the band live or while listening to their music. Unfortunately the video has received a few comments referencing the use of drugs within the video.
PMR feel very strongly against the glamorisation of drugs in any capacity and as such we have made the decision to remove the video."
