When you think of Maroon 5, fake blood that makes 'The Texas Chain Saw Massacre' look tame probably doesn't come to mind. But in his latest Instagram and Twitter post, front man Adam Levine channeled his inner 'True Blood' and posed shirtless, dripping in blood. He tagged the photo #ANIMALS leading fans to speculate that the crazy photo is a behind-the-scenes shot for a music video of the band's new song 'Animals.'

The single, which was released on August 29, has lyrics like 'maybe you think that you can hide / I can smell your scent for miles /Just like animals.'

And who better to hunt down using his impeccable sense of smell than his own wife, Behati Prinsloo. The Victoria's Secret stunner, also covered in blood and clutching a towel, posed alongside her main squeeze in the creepy snap and appears to have a starring role in his band's new video. Levine and his 25-year-old ladylove married two months ago in Mexico and she is clearly reaping the benefits of being connected to the superstar. Prinsloo reposted Levine's picture to her own Instagram with the same tag.

The shocking photo comes just hours after Maroon 5 announced a new tour starting in February. Tickets go on pre-sale in the U.S. on September 6 and in Europe on the third. The tour is to promote their new album 'V.'
