3 Doors Down are alternative rock veterans still pumping out hits after 16 years of service. After this long in the game, though, it’s important to stay fresh – the creative pursuit is an unending one. Hence the drama-fuelled video for new single ‘In The Dark’.
Directed by Magnus Jonsson and Martin Landgreve of Gaucho Film (Azalea Banks), and starring Breaking Bad’s RJ Mitte, the clip explores a warped reality of seduction, manipulation and sexual attraction. It’s a heavy trip, both unsettling and transfixing.
On working with the band and the Breaking Bad actor, Jonsson and Landgreve had this to say: “To make music videos were The Gaucho boys' childhood dream, so to make a video for childhood idols 3 Doors Down is incredible.
“RJ is a born actor, and probably the best we've worked with. He brings a lot to the table and he's just as cool and rock ‘n’ roll as 3 Doors Down themselves-couldn't have been a better choice for the role!”
Us And The Night was recorded at Nashville’s Rivergate Studio with producer Matt Wallace (Marron 5, Faith No More). It looks to be another foray into bold and inspired songwriting from the band, with performances at Welcome to Rockville, Fort Rock Festival and Carolina Rebellion Festival all forthcoming.
