Self-described cinematic rock group Earthside have released their new music video for the track ‘Mob Mentality’, from their upcoming debut album A Dream In Static, due out on October 23rd. You can watch the video at this link or below:

‘Mob Mentality’ features Lajon Witherspoon from Sevendust on vocals and the Moscow Studio Symphony Orchestra (MSSO) on the track. Guitarist James Van Dyck commented on the video:

 

“Making this video was a fulfilling process because as such a transdisciplinary project, it crossed our paths with talented individuals across the arts,” van Dyck explained. “We worked with dancers, choreographers, directors, editors, colorists, professional orchestral musicians, a conductor, an orchestra contractor, a wardrobe/costume person, and of course a rock star vocalist. Involving all these people in our art reaffirmed the value of what we’re doing and sets the stage for the collaborative spirit we hope to continue to embody as we reach across the arts into the worlds of film, dance, video games, and other visual arts.”
