Today we premiered the music video for "Waiting for the End." It was an opportunity to experiment with pushing the digital envelope as it pertains to the visual language created thus far for A Thousand Suns. It was my attempt to digitally crush us to the point that you feel the soul of the music through what has become the essence of us. We become the ghosts in the machine. Some may say that because of technology, we lose a sense of who we are. I counter that by illustrating that we can get closer to who we are if we sift through the noise. If this sounds like it's too 'out there,' just ignore what I said and enjoy the pretty pictures. Let me know what you think here.

If you haven't seen it, here's a link.

I love the digital effects. The color use is great and it does have that 'pretty' factor that appeals to so many. The light show creates an easy trance like effect, merging music and visuals very nicely. Neither distracts from the other. Nice balance there!

While I think this is a great video, great reflection of where the band has come to, I felt the video could have been really epic, 'video of the year' quality. You have this amazing combination of mature audio and great visuals, but it never seems to peak, visually that is. I dig it, really, really dig it, as an artist myself, but wanted to see a more grand visual finish to follow the great climax of the audio.

Either way, great work!
Wonderful, trippin' video for a great song...and another A+ album!
