Juliette and the Licks 'Stick' it to Ya

WRITTEN BY

Since shedding her endearing silver screen neurosis for the rawk of 2005's You're Speaking My Language, Juliette Lewis and her backing band the Licks break out with a vengeance once again. Behold the new video for "Sticky Honey", one of the many rock nuggets featured on the band's forthcoming album, Four on the Floor. Making an impressive homage to comic book kitsch that contains as many giggles as absolute rock-out toe-taps, Lewis, with her leather and lace-like leotard and a crown of sparkles, transforms into a glam-rock Wonder Woman and narrowly escapes the wrath of an evil clan of skeletons and their robot master.

From jailbird-clad bandits to trap doors and laser-endowed guitars, it's a far cry from Natural Born Killers or The Other Sister -- but Juliette and the Licks' good time, bare-bones rock'n'roll is straightforward and full of sass in this retro aerobics action-adventure. Surrender to the superpower of Juliette and the Licks -- Four on the Floor, the band's sophomore effort and debut LP for Militia Group, arrives July 24th.
