Primus honors a friend they lost to drug addiction in the new video for “Jilly’s on Smack,” a cut from the band’s latest album, Green Naugahyde . The video, which is currently streaming on RollingStone.com , features footage of the band performing the track live interspersed with old home movies from Christmases long past.

Frontman Les Claypool tells Rolling Stone that “Jilly’s on Smack” is about a friend of the band who "disappeared into the world of heroin." The singer adds that the holidays are a difficult time for those who have lost a family member to drugs because “the parents, grandparents, siblings...feel the brunt of the heartache as they look at that empty dinner chair or Christmas stocking."
