Back in January, Born of Osiris dropped their head-spinning fifth album, The Simulation, a dystopian mediation on the dangers of technology full of the Illinois progressive metalcore stalwarts' patented mix of knotty brutality and tasteful melody. Today, the group has teamed with Revolver to premiere the new live music video for standout cut "Under the Gun," which was filmed on the first U.S. leg of the band's continuing tour in support of the record.
"The first time we played 'Under the Gun' live, it only took a few seconds to realize we had something special with the song," guitarist Lee McKinney says. "The crowd would already be jumping during the intro before the band even kicked in and it never would let up. For that reason, we filmed the song every night for six weeks and compiled the footage into what you see today.
"The second leg of The Simulation USA Tour kicks off July 19th with Bad Omens, Spite and Kingdom of Giants. We wanted to bring The Simulation to as many cities as we could that didn't get to see the first leg. We'll see you soon."
