The band TENLo released the video for its song Kill All the Things on Tuesday. Band members Joey Zak and TomE LaBrosse, are from Milwaukee and now live in Nashville, according to the TENLo Facebook page.
The video features Diamond, who is identified as Weinstein. Wearing a wide open collar shirt, Diamond’s character swaggers into a bar and is seen consuming shots and snorting cocaine in a bathroom. He then encounters actress Kelly Cunningham, a “vengeful nun,” and meets a bloody demise at her hand.
