Negative Posts New Video For "Believe"

Finnish band Negative has posted a new video for the song "Believe" from the 2010 release "Neon." The video was filed in Tampere, Finland.

Frontman Jonne Aaron made the following comments on the video: "In the scenes that were filmed on the beach, you can see area where I spent my childhood years ... it's a western part of Tampere city and it's called Lielahti. If you look really closely, you can see the factory where my grandparents used to work at back in '60s and '70s. So this video is kind of a back-to-the-roots step, it means a lot to me. I'm very glad that this video brings more flesh to the song. The song itself is quite romantic and so is the video. We thought it might be very exotic to the people all over the world to film some Finnish nature/sunset."
