Watch: Imagine Dragons bring arcade games to life in ‘Zero’

A couple of weeks after surprising fans with the announcement of a new studio album, Imagine Dragons have returned with the music video for their latest single. On Monday (Oct. 23), the Las Vegas-founded band dropped the music video for their new song, and “Ralph Breaks the Internet” contribution, “Zero.” The Dave Meyers-directed clip finds the band getting sucked into the world of video games while footage from the upcoming Disney/Pixar film is interwoven into the almost-four-minute clip.

The video finds the members of Imagine Dragons playing different roles including the unfortunate cashier dealing with teenagers and different characters inside of a game. The clip even features frontman Dan Reynolds with an over-sized head, stuck inside of a video game reminiscent of Pac-Man.

As the premise for the upcoming “Wreck-It Ralph” sequel is about Ralph and Vanellope heading to the internet to find a controller to fix her broken arcade game, the music video features an unsuspecting soul getting hit in the face with a football resulting in him breaking said controller. Watch the music video for “Zero” above.

“Zero” will join Imagine Dragons’ previously released track “Natural” on their upcoming new album Origins. Origins, the sister album to 2017’s Evolve, is due out Nov. 9 through Interscope Records. Pre-orders for Origins are currently available on Imagine Dragons’ website.

The band is offering two different versions of the album; a standard version which includes 12 songs and a deluxe version which includes 15 songs. All pre-orders will include instant downloads of both “Natural” and “Zero.”

Crown the Empire unleash music video for ‘Zero’


A week after announcing the release of their new album, Crown the Empire has returned with the first song off the record. On Friday (June 10), the Texas band unleashed the music video for “Zero,” which can be considered the first single from the impending release. “We wrote this song specifically for our longtime fans,” begins vocalist Andy Leo.

“We feel that the song’s explosive energy coupled with the psychedelic production and video really puts our best foot forward to give the listener an idea of what they can expect to hear from the album overall. We hope you enjoy ‘Zero,’ your first taste of our album Retrograde. We are very excited for its release on July 22nd.” Watch the video for the new tune below.

As mentioned by Leo, “Zero” will be featured on their upcoming new album, Retrograde. Retrograde is set to be released on July 22 through Rise Records and is the follow-up to 2014’s The Resistance: Rise of The Runaways. Pre-orders for the new record are currently available here where they are offering a slew of bundles to pick from. In support of the newly announced record, the band will hit the road this summer on the 2016 Vans Warped Tour.
