Linkin Park and Kiiara Fighting Own Demons in 'Heavy' Music Video

The Tim Mattia-directed visuals sees the band's vocalist Chester Bennington battling his ego to join a support group, where he gets into a confrontation with another member.

AceShowbiz - Days after an incredible performance on "The Late Late Show with James Corden", Linkin Park has officially released a music video for their latest collaborative track with Kiiara called "Heavy". Directed by Tim Mattia, the visuals finds the band's vocalist Chester Bennington and the Illinois singer fighting their own demons.

The nearly-three-minute clip begins with Chester, who is apparently an alcoholic, leaving his house to join a support group. However, he gets into a confrontation with another member while Kiiara is watching from a distance. Chester leaves the group in a fury and walks into a bathroom, where he starts throwing things to the mirror. The emotional video ends with Kiiara reaching out to the singer, who is seen sitting in the floor after engaging in a fierce fist fight.

"Heavy" will be featured on Linkin Park's upcoming album "One More Light", which is slated to hit the shelves on May 19. Speaking to Billboard about the album, the band's guitarist Mike Shinoda said that the pop-friendly song reflected much of the tone of the new record.

"One of the reasons why we chose 'Heavy' as the first single is because it is really the core sound of the album," he said. "This wasn't a scenario where the whole album sounds one way and the single sounds different. This is how the album sounds."

"One More Light" marks the band's seventh album, following their 2014 effort "The Hunting Party". The new set features 10 tracks in total and is available for pre-order on CD and vinyl via the band's website.
