“One More Light” music video directed by Joe Hahn & Mark Fiore.
“It has been incredibly emotional to work on this, and especially to watch it. I feel that by doing it, we not only faced some of our biggest fears, but it enabled us to use our talents to bring some light to people that need it. As we move forward to the Hollywood Bowl show and beyond, I think about the people that connect with the band, outside and inside our circle. This video is a gesture of good will to the people that want that connection.” - JOE HAHN
“One More Light was written with the intention of sending love to those who lost someone. We now find ourselves on the receiving end. In memorial events, art, videos, and images, fans all over the world have gravitated towards this song as their declaration of love and support for the band and the memory of our dear friend, Chester. We are so very grateful and can’t wait to see you again.” - MIKE SHINODA
I just want to take a moment to give a mini artist appreciation post for David Yardin. He has been producing some fantastic covers for the recent Jean Grey series, and I have been really enjoying seeing young Jean cross paths with a range of Marvel heroes. Beautiful artwork. :]
Finnish band ‘Santa Cruz’ to release a single named after River
Santa Cruz’s new single named River Phoenix will be released on May 26 through Sakara Records.
The album will be released only in the fall, but its first single named “River Phoenix” will be released worldwide on May 26. In Finland, the album will be released by the renowned Sakara Records and distributed by Sony Music.
The first single, “River Phoenix”, has a great symbolic significance for the band:
‘’River Phoenix is a tribute to the late actor River Phoenix, while also referring to the legend of the Phoenix, which built the nest of cinnamon sticks by burning itself on fire and emerging from these ashes. Just as River Phoenix’s legacy is going to live forever, it is also important that the Phoenix is a symbol of eternal life and immortality. At the same time, it’s time for Santa Cruz to rise from its ashes and after a bit of a bit quiet, put a new gear in its eye and return to the road,’’ the band notes.
The singer of the band has been a fan of River since childhood.
Note: That’s what I was able to translate from a Finnish website - so I’m sorry for the lack of information and the poor language. As soon as I know more about it, I’ll post here.
