Taken from their upcoming record ‘Panic Stations’, Motion City Soundtrack have unveiled a new video for their latest single, ‘Lose Control’.
Director of the video, Dan Huiting, said: “When I first heard ‘Lose Control,’ I thought of a sort of ‘super hero’ origin story, where a person learns they have a superpower. Only for Justin, he learns he can kill things that he touches. We also thought it would be cool to incorporate a woman that he meets that can reverse all the things he’s killed. Some of the narrative elements are a bit opaque because we didn’t want to just explain everything. It was really nice to collaborate with Justin on this, who has a really good sensibility about filmmaking in general.”
“Dan Huiting has been doing great work for as far back as I can remember. It was a riot to work with him and his crew. Everyone worked hard AND played hard. I nearly broke my ankle running up and down the street with Emily but it was absolutely worth it. I rate this experience 5 out 5 stars. Would highly recommend,” continued vocalist Justin Pierre.
The sixth studio album will be released on 18th September via Epitaph Records. Following its debut, MCS are hitting the road with The Wonder Years, State Champs and You Blew It! for a North American tour.
