After being teased through a bunch of pictures, Linkin Park's forthcoming music video for their new single "New Divide" is now made available for closer look through on-set footage. It shows the band's members flying with slings on their backs, being "yanked around by unseen forces and out of control."
It also shows the video's director DJ Joe Hahn, who is also the band's member, giving direction to Mike Shinoda. "I'm trying my best like hang on at the keyboard and still playing the part, like I'm hold in every direction by these people [crew]," Mike says of how he plays his part.
On the concept of the video, the band's member Mike recently said, "[Joe] is planning on using a lot of really interesting cutting-edge visual techniques, blurring the line between our performance and some kind of digital/mechanical reality." As of the band's frontman Chester Bennington, he stated, "We're in a tomb rocking out and there's a huge dead Transformer."
"New Divide" is a theme song for movie "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen". Beside having Linkin Park's track as one of its anthems, the movie will also feature music worked on by composer Steve Jablonsky. Robert Epps' depicter, Tyrese Gibson, plans to make a contribution, and Stan Bush has re-recorded his 1986 song "The Touch" with the hopes that it will be used as one of the film's soundtracks.
"Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" itself is slated to be outed in U.S. on June 24. It features the likes of Shia LaBeouf, Megan Fox, Josh Duhamel, John Turturro, Isabel Lucas and Rainn Wilson in addition to Tyrese Gibson.
