Closer To The Edge

After waiting far longer (in my opinion) than the US should, we finally have the newest video from 30 Seconds to Mars. It premiered at midnight on Myspace Music. In typical 30 Seconds to Mars fashion, they have topped themselves yet again. There is a lusciousness and splendor with a fantastic message in this beautiful video.

Perhaps my favorite line in this video is..

“Some people believe in God, I believe in music. Some people pray, I turn up the radio.”

I’m not sure how 30 Seconds to Mars are able to continually top themselves when it comes to music videos. Watching the evolution of their videos (I’m a music video junkie by the way), you can easily see how they have evolved and grown as a band. The Kill and Attack will always be classics but I think 30 Seconds to Mars is bringing about a new type of video. They have upped the ante. They continue to incorporate fans in their videos (and music) be it in concert footage, talking to the camera, or going for a bike ride. They are all encompassing, giving their videos more emotion and power than any I have seen. These aren’t just videos, they are mini movies. They span everything the earth has to offer; race, religion, generations, and continents. Let’s see someone else top that.
