Rock band trio BURNOUT SYNDROMES just dropped the music video to their new single Good Morning World! which is set to hit shelves on August 21.
The video was shot at a quarry and in a studio in Ibaraki Prefecture in early June. It makes use of drone footage which captures the grand scale of the location and couples together with the aggressive music performances. The lyrics to the song maintain the band’s concept of “literary rock” which are presented in calligraphy style typography.
The video contains many iconic scenes, especially the beauty of the instance when the glass breaks which represents a new world forming from destruction.
The song serves as the opening theme for the ongoing TV anime series Dr. Stone. The song was released for digital download today (August 2) and pre-orders for the CD are now open.
Takashi Chiba, the director of the music video, commented the following: “This is a music video that the band really pushed for! Listening to the song, me and the staff wanted to aim for an open location where we could film with a drone. That was the base of our idea which developed from the song’s lyrics ‘good morning world.’ What even was there before we said good morning to the world in the first place? This is something we thought about and arrived at the idea of the old world order breaking to give life to a new world order. We had a black background behind the band which was the old world and then it cuts [to the new world] when the glass breaks […] We edited it so it focuses on the three members. Please check them out as they build a new world from the old broken one […]”
