After a tumultuous year, Chicago-based alternative rock group Madina Lake are gearing up for their third album, ‘World War III’, due out September 13th on Razor & Tie. The album’s release is preceded by the single “Hey Superstar” and video which premieres today below. The performance-based clip cleverly juxtaposes the song’s ethereal textures which bleed into propulsive guitars before the anthemic hook takes hold.

Madina Lake teamed with director Andrew Bennett for the video which depicts the group’s DIY attitude and the main concept running throughout ‘World War III’: survival and triumph through the unexpected curveballs of life.
