Rise Against Premiere Lyric Video For New Song “Broken Dreams, Inc.”

Rise Against have premiered a lyric video for their new song “Broken Dreams, Inc.” The clip features art from DC’s “Dark Nights: Death Metal” drawn by Greg Capullo. The track is from the upcoming “Dark Nights: Death Metal The Original Soundtrack.” Tim McIIlrath commented:

“One word, ‘disruption.’ You have to put power into the hands of the people, not business, you have to value people and community over profit. You can’t have a shareholder-run country or a shareholder-run world, a world that values profit above all else, because profit above all else can result in dangerous repercussions for humankind.”

Black Veil Brides, Ex-Slayer, Etc. Members Involved In New Animated “Dark Nights: Death Metal” Short Film

The first episode of DC Comics‘ “Dark Nights: Death Metal” series has been shared online. The short film is based on the comic series by Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo and it features a score by Tyler Bates (“Guardians Of The Galaxy”, “John Wick”). A number of rock/metal musicians are also involved including Dave Lombardo (ex-Slayer, etc.), who contributed percussion, Zakk Wylde (Black Label Society, etc.), who contributed guitar fx, Andy Biersack (Black Veil Brides), who voiced Batman, and Chelsea Wolfe, who voiced Wonder Woman. Carach Angren‘s “Skull With A Forked Tongue” can also be heard during the credits.

In related news, Loma Vista Recordings will also be releasing the “Dark Nights: Death Metal The Original Soundtrack” in 2021. A teaser of Rise Against‘s “Broken Dreams, Inc.” from the effort can be found below. The full track is expected to be released on Wednesday (September 16). Bates said the following about the soundtrack:

“In ‘Dark Nights: Death Metal‘, Loma Vista Recordings and I saw an opportunity to bring artists together to create a diverse soundtrack that is inspired directly by this incredible comic series. Our intent is not to literally create a death metal soundtrack, but instead, to illuminate the darkest corners of each character’s psyche from an authentic perspective that is thematically inherent in death metal music.

But a soundtrack is merely a collection of songs unless it is holistically intertwined with the story teller’s original work. With the support of DC and Loma Vista Recordings, and with the help of several artists, I’m creating a short-form animatic film series derived from Greg Capullo‘s original artwork for ‘Dark Nights: Death Metal‘.

I’ve invited artists on the soundtrack, and pop-culture personalities alike, to voice the characters illustrated in Scott and Greg‘s masterful take on classic DC characters. This has possibly never been more relevant to real life than the challenging time the world is currently experiencing.”

Rise Against’s Tim McIlrath added:

“Personally, being involved with this soundtrack is really fantastic, Growing up, my little brother and I would ride our bikes to the newsstand near our house and spend all our money on the latest comic books, and Batman was a favorite.

Also, Zach, our guitarist, is probably the biggest comic book geek in our band. He’s talked about how, along with his brother and father, they were all big DC fans – Batman, Robin, Superman, Aquaman, all the comic book series, the TV shows, and feature films. So, yes, we’re all very excited about being part of this.”

“Baby Broccoli! We covered The Replacements with a bunch of new friends and old friends. Ted Leo is dressed like a priest and Nate Newton isn’t wearing a shirt. What more could you want from us?

This is our 17th bedroom cover made with the support of Patreon.
