Metalunderground.com is proud to present the premiere of ILL NIÑO's latest music video for “Against The Wall,” the first video from their new album “Dead New World,” which was released on October 25th via Victory Records. The music video was directed by Scott Hansen, who has worked with bands such as A Day To Remember, The Devil Wears Prada, Otep, Alesana, and Evergreen Terrace, and was shot in Virginia Beach, VA in October.

“The video was shot in the evening so there was a large amount of bugs. It was like Spider-fest,” jokes drummer Dave Chavarri. “Bugs aside, Scott made sure everything worked smoothly. He’s a total professional, and it was great to see him take control of the shoot. We haven’t had someone work with us like that for a couple of years.”

“We did something like a 20 hour shoot in the swamps,” adds vocalist Cristian Machado. “Scott is a really driven individual. He knew exactly what he wanted, where he wanted people in the video, the camera angles he wanted to end up with, everything. He and his crew were extremely professional.”

“The reason we’re performing in the woods where there are no material things, is because we wanted to represent things that aren’t of the material world,” continues Machado. “The reason the couple is indoors during the video and going through their relationship battle is because they are being pressured by things in the material world. To me, the female character went into the water because she wanted to get away from all of the material things affecting her and their relationship. No matter how material we all are in this world, we all die alone.”

ILL NIÑO is expected to announce a brand new January tour very soon. This will be the first time the band is touring in the states in two years. Stay tuned for more updates on the upcoming tour.

I figured the girly went into the water because the guy was an abusive a$$hole and she found suicide as a quick and easy way to get out of it all. I didn't see a damn thing about "material things" in the video.

Plus, she would've been a hell of a lot better off with a guy that had long metal hair.

....just sayin'

pretty kool video. wouldda been better with the song was heavier. wouldda gone along with it more. ironically, this is the worst song on the album. there's WAY better and heavier songs on the album. it kinda blends "engima" with "one nation underground", thankfully i guess lol

PARA LA RUMBA LATINA!!! \m/

^^^ wtf?? 0.o lol

ambrish: i can assure u, this song is the worst one. period. most of the rest of the songs are 10x's better and actually heavy. the choruses on this album are just catchier, but that's always been a part of their sound.

maria: no, yo quierro que ellos vengan para aqui miami!! nunca lo he visto en concierto =( me gusta mucho este CD, pero estraño la musica de el disco "revolucion".

PARA LA RUMBA LATINA \m/

to nothing head. just cause your taste in music falls towards the heavier side of music does not make a song the worst song because it is light. just shows how much of a close minded sheep you are.

Aaaaaand I just came. That was beast. I love Ill Nino. Oh.. and one more thing..

Dear Cristian Machado: I love you and your dreads. Along with Wayne Static, I plan on making love to you one day. Lulz <;3

But yeah, I actually MIGHT buy this album instead of downloading it. O: But knowing me, I'll probably just download it. xD

^^^^ I like it, but I don't. It all depends on the guy, really lulz. I just have a thing for dreads and Wayne is just beautiful in general. Like, my boyfriend doesn't have the rugged look at all really. He's pretty clean cut and has a mohawk.. I have an odd taste in my men... and women, but that's irrelevant.

so the "choices" are to either be up against the wall of materialism, or be drowned by the creature from the black lagoon? the song was kinda catchy.
