Exclusive: RED Premiere New Video, “Release the Panic”

Rock group RED will unleash their fourth album, Release the Panic, in both Deluxe and Standard editions on Tuesday, February 5 via Essential (Provident Label Group/Sony)–it’s available for preorder on iTunes.  In anticipation, the band is premiering the video for album title track, “Release The Panic,” right here right now. The concept for post-apocalyptic, revolution fantasy clip was created by RED who brought Chris Corrado (Eagle Eye, Charlie Wilson’s War, Indiana Jones & The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull) on board to direct the video.

“We pulled out all the stops…again,” guitarist Anthony Armstrong says the video. “This is the sequel to our video for ‘Feed The Machine.’ There are no rules when making a video, so we made a movie. We like the theatricality and metaphoric approach to making videos. We want to tell a story, but make sure it is exciting and something fans will always look forward to and ask, ‘When’s the next one coming?’ We love knowing that these videos are a suspension of the reality out there in the world around us…”

Watch the “Release The Panic” clip below and let us know what you think in the comments. You can also stream the new album in its entirety today at ARTISTDIRECT.
