This week an eclectic group of videos featuring bad ass women, potential kidnappings and answering the question no one asked: Why do escalators move so slow?
Axel Rudi Pell has released a new video for the song "Long Way To Go," taken from the guitarist's latest album "Into The Storm." The video starts like an indie movie, a boring indie movie. We see city like scenes and then an escalator. Is the escalator a metaphor for life and the “long way to go?” Maybe it just means some escalators are way to slow and this song is about how long it takes. If so, I understand…
The hard rock power trio California Breed - which consists of Glenn Hughes (vocals, bass), Jason Bonham (drums), and Andrew Watt (guitar) - today releases the official lyric video for the "Midnight Oil" single.
The animated lyric video was created by Nev Todoroic who spearheads the interactive media production company The Young Astronauts. "Midnight Oil" will also be available as an instant gratification track by pre-ordering the band's self-titled album at iTunes here.
Says California Breed’s guitarist, Andrew Watt: "We wanted a lyric video that would make people want to watch this song in addition to just listen to it, one that would highlight the bombastic grooves of the track and convey the rhythm of the message. I turned to my friends, the Young Astronauts, whose previous videos have hundreds of millions of views, but they don’t work with a lot of rock bands and I thought THAT’S the magic, right there."
“It’s a refreshing animated video that really captures the lyrical concert and message of the Midnight Oil single,” says California Breed’s vocalist and bassist, Glenn Hughes. “We didn’t want to make a run-of-the-mill lyric video. The animation perfectly captures the raw energy, lyrical content and the message of what Midnight Oil is really all about... rock n roll!!”
The band's self-titled album will be released via Frontiers Records in Europe on May 16th, and in the U.K. and U.S. on May 19th. More...
