ALTER BRIDGE's video for the song "Show Me A Leader" can be seen below. The clip is based on a concept created by the band 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's talent and unique creative style, something the band was immediately drawn to.
"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 7 by Caroline Records in the United States/Canada and Napalm Records throughout the rest of the globe. In the U.S., the song has been moving up the Active Rock charts being a Greatest Gainer this week via Mediabase and was Top 5 Most Added when it was released last week. The single is currently #27 on the Active Rock Chart this week.
"The Last Hero" is now available for pre-order via iTunes, Amazon and Google Play. Fans who order the album will receive an instant download of "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) and mastered by Grammy Award winner Ted Jensen.
ALTER BRIDGE is heading out on select U.S. headline dates in support of "The Last Hero" this coming September and select ticket purchases will come with a digital album. The headline run kicks off September 22 in Destin, Florida. The band will also perform at a few festival dates this fall, including the inaugural Houston Open Air, Sonic Boom, Louder Than Life and the Tulsa State Fair.
