Motion City Soundtrack has shared their new video for ‘Lose Control‘. The song is off the band’s sixth studio album, ‘Panic Stations‘, out September 18th via Epitaph.
The video was directed by Dan Huiting (Bon Iver, Sylvan Esso, Colin Stetson) and features singer Justin Pierre discovering his supernatural power to kill everything he touches. Check it out below.
Director Dan Huiting states:
“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.“
Singer Justin Pierre expands:
“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.“
Motion City Soundtrack will kick off their Australian tour this week. This tour has the focus on their classic album Commit This To Memory as they celebrate its 10-year anniversary. The band will perform the celebrated record in its entirety, as well as a selection of songs from their impressive sixteen-year five-album career.
