‘Light Up The Night’ is the first music video from rock opera outfit The Protomen, and they’ve debuted in epic style with a sixteen minute short film.
Tennessee rockers The Protomen have just released a whopping sixteen minute long music video/short film for their track ‘Light Up The Night’, a song taken from their 2009 album ‘Act II: The Father of Death’.
The album, the second from the band, presented a narrative prequel to ‘Act I’ and tells the story of the rivalry between ‘Albert Wily’ and ‘Thomas Light’. Names fans of the ‘Mega Man’ video game series will be familiar with.
Famous for their concept albums based on Nintendo’s popular ‘Mega Man’ series of video games, the band have transformed their inspiration into a dystopian sci-fi epic.
The story is in part visualised in the music video which stars James Ransone (The Wire, Generation Kill), Steve Olson (Thrashin’, Santa Cruz/Dogtown Artist), Joel Nagle (Do The Right Thing, Palimpsest) and Laine Rettmer.
Astonishingly this is the first ever official music video from The Protomen and credit must go to directors Matt Sundin and Caspar Newbolt who perfectly capture the sound of the band in their visual presentation.
