When recently announcing their fifth studio album »No More Hollywood Endings«, which will be unleashed on March 22nd via Nuclear Blast, Finnish heavy metallers BATTLE BEAST promised fans a taster of their new offering at the beginning of 2019 – and the group has kept true to their word!
Packed with extravagant melodies, the official music video for the new album’s title track provides the perfect visuals for the song’s meaningful message. Directed by Markus Nieminen and produced by Oy Routafilmi AB / Tuotantoyhtiö Legenda, the official video for ‘No More Hollywood Endings’ can be viewed here:
Keyboardist Janne Björkroth comments on the track, “The song tells a story about living up to other people’s expectations and becoming a kind of a sidekick in one’s own life. Hollywood conventions and media set unrealistic expectations and narrow ideals about such things as beauty and happiness, and it’s easy to get lost while trying to fit the mould. The song claims that there isn’t a universal pattern for happiness, but everyone has a right to be respected as they are and live a life that suits for themselves. It’s a hymn to individuality.”
