ALTER BRIDGE has always worked to outdo their previous efforts in every aspect of their career. The same holds true for the newest video for their debut single “Show Me A Leader” that was released today.
The video is based on a concept created by ALTER BRIDGE and director Zev Deans that brings life to the story told in the single’s lyrics. The animated video shows the world in turmoil as politicians (represented by suits with megaphone heads) are broadcasting harmful messages to the public. The band is on a roof with a satellite dish performing “Show Me A Leader” to counteract the harmful messages being spread. The video is visually captivating and showcases Deans’ talent and unique creative style, something the band was immediately drawn to. The video can be seen below.
“Show Me A Leader” is the debut single from Alter Bridge’s fifth studio album, “The Last Hero“. The album is scheduled for worldwide release on October 7th by Napalm Records (world excluding USA/Canada) and Caroline Records in the United States/Canada.
The Last Hero is now available for pre-order physically as LTD vinyl, LTD CD here and via iTunes, Amazon and Google Play. Fans who order the album will receive an instant download of the debut single “Show Me A Leader”. The album is also available in various fan bundles at www.Alterbridge.com/store. In addition, a new shirt design has been made available to mark the occasion of the video release. The Last Hero was produced by longtime friend and collaborator Michael “Elvis” Baskette (Slash, Tremonti, Trivium, etc) and mastered by Grammy award winner Ted Jensen.
ALTER BRIDGE has recently also announced its long-anticipated return to Europe. Their biggest headline shows yet, the 24-date tour treks 15 countries and kicks off on November 4th.
