Gogol Bordello have just released an official video for 'Lost Innocent World' which is featured on the band's critically acclaimed new album 'Pura Vida Conspiracy', which is available now on Casa Gogol/Ato Records.
With this new video, which can be seen below, lead singer Eugene Hutz wanted to capture the essence of an old saying: "Every man has to go through his hell to get to his heaven."
"The hourglass here signifies that hell, where people are too busy living in the future or living in the past", says Hutz before adding, "meanwhile, the actual and most alive part of life is indeed now. It really is yours for the taking, if you are interested in aliveness."

The video was directed by Los Angeles based Grant and Ross Kolton who grew up with a common interest in movies, music, and television with Ross exploring film while Grant focused on animation. Grant Kolton has been animating for over ten years and has worked for clients including Dave Matthews Band, HBO's 'True Blood' and rock bands Cage The Elephant and My Morning Jacket.
Meanwhile, Ross Kolton has created productions for E! News and DeathSquad TV and has recently finished his own feature length film.
Gogol Bordello have spent the last decade getting down with that energy through their meteoric live shows and has earned a solid reputation as "the hottest global touring act to come out of New York" (Billboard) and "the world's most riotous live band" (Rolling Stone).
Their wildly energetic live shows are celebrated by fans worldwide and have brought them to nearly every corner of the globe and to the main stage of festivals including Coachella, Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Roskilde, Rock am Ring as well as Leeds and Reading in the UK.
