Tom DiCillo Announces “Lock Him Up” Single and Video Release

Press Release

Los Angeles, CA – Wednesday, June 14, 2023—Musician and Award-winning Independent Film icon Tom DiCillo has announced the release of his brand new single and video, “Lock Him Up.”

“There is a creep of idiocity infecting this country,” DiCillo states. “The only way to change things is to get involved. This song got me involved.”

The song and video reflect DiCillo’s unique blend of drama, satire, and comedy, which have infused his films, from Living In Oblivion to Delirious. The song is a driving Alt-Rocker, with a joyous, gospel sing-along chorus that lifts it into a new, foot-stomping, provocative original.

DiCillo wrote, performed, and recorded the song, playing all the instruments himself.

There is a slightly surreal Pop Art quality to the video, which DiCillo wrote, shot, directed, and edited. With its animated graphics and high-contrast color, the video evokes both Bob Dylan and Andy Warhol.
