Arizona alternative rock legends Jimmy Eat World just released their tenth full-length effort, ‘Surviving’, and now they’ve shared another video for one of its tracks, ‘555’.
The sci-fi inspired video was co-directed by Michael Gill and frontman Jim Adkins, and this is what Adkins had to say about it.
“I’ve always liked the Rick Springfield video for ‘Bop ‘Till You Drop’. A reptilian overlord managing his minions gets overthrown by his workforce. He’s kind of trying to keep them in line, but one guy breaks into song and mass rebellion ensues. From the overlord’s perspective, that day was a pretty bad day.
I always thought that was funny. So ‘555’ sees me cast as a galactic evil master, overseeing an army of cloned species doing my bidding – this is the only life they know, joining me in song in this post-apocalyptic dystopia.”
You can stream and watch the video for ‘555’ below.
The band’s tenth studio album, ‘Surviving’, is out now through The Orchard/RCA Records.
