Pop-punk quartet The Anthem has released a new music video for the single “Like You’re James Dean.” The Pulp Fiction-esque video was shot in Rome by the Audax Cor Agency and premiered at Myspace.com.
“The song is about those people who only care about appearance and act like they are better than the rest, but who have nothing special to offer,” bassist/vocalist Paolo Notarsanti said in an interview with Myspace.com. “The video was very fun to shoot, my favourite part is when we grab the guns and shoot the poor guy (those were real shotguns, it’s was a very dangerous moment and we didn’t use stuntmen!).“
“Like You’re James Dean” is taken from the band’s sophomore album In It To Win It, released last June and available on iTunes.
The Anthem is a four piece rock/pop-punk band. Hailing from Rome, Italy,
the band emerged as one of the most interesting bands, with tracks
characterized by unforgettable melodies, explosive guitar hooks and
relentlessly driving rhythms.
After more than 100 shows between Italy, Germany, France, Russia, Ukraine,
supporting bands like All Time Low, You Me At Six, Young Guns, The Maine
and more, as a promotion of the debut album “High Five” (2012), the band
has released its second full-length album, “In It To Win It”, which brought the
band to tour Japan for its first time ever.
