With Linkin Park’s new album on the cusp of being released, it comes as no surprise that the band have already debuted several tracks from the new album to their fans.
As of now, “Guilty All the Same,” “Wastelands,” “Rebellion,” “Final Masquerade” have already debuted, and today, the band released the music video for the newest addition to that list, the video for “Until It’s Gone.”
Unlike many artists, the band have decided to forgo premiering the video on YouTube and Vevo and decided to give it straight to the fans through their Facebook page.
As Mashable pointed out, this mode of releasing videos has been catching on with Ed Sheeran doing the same for his “Sing” video, Jay-Z with “Holy Grail,” Bruno Mars with “Gorilla” and Mariah Carey with her new track, “The Art of Letting Go.”
“The visuals have an aggressive edge to it that is the representation of the band as The Hunting Party,” Linkin Park’s Joe Hahn describe the music video to Mashable during an interview.
“We are the same guys you always knew but, a little older, weathered and experienced. The video has an undertone of the world is going to shit. There is black ooze that crystallizes the world. It is an infection. The black ooze is representing other music out there. We are merely here to fill in that sliver with the music that we bring. I guess you can say that we are filling a void.”
Watch the video below.
Don’t forget Linkin Park will be heading out on their “Carnivores Tour” with 30 Seconds to Mars and AFI in August while The Hunting Party hits stores next Tuesday (June 17). Hope we see you there.
