MAD MAX Releases 'Beat Of The Heart' Video
German melodic hard rockers MAD MAX will release their new album, ”35”, on August 10 via SPV/Steamhammer. The disc’s first single, ”Beat Of The Heart”, stands out among the 11 songs for a number of reasons. On one hand, the track could be described as the 2018 sequel to MAD MAX‘s most important hit ”Night Of Passion”, and on the other hand, the bandmembers have made their longstanding dream come true with the video that supports the song.
”For once in the history of MAD MAX, we wanted to shoot a video that has the look and the cinematic quality of a real little motion picture,” the band said. ”Thanks to the support of our sponsor Hubert Teichmann, we got that opportunity at last.”
By way of explanation: Hubert Teichmann, among other things the owner of the private ”Staudenbahn” railway line near Augsburg, has been a staunch patron of the arts for a number of years — again the term ”idealism” comes to mind! — and he supplied the financial means that enabled mad max to shoot a video clip in Berlin with a number of actors, among them leading man Vinzenz Kiefer (”The Baader Meinhof Complex”, the action/crime drama series ”Alarm für Cobra 11”, ”Jason Bourne”) and director/screenwriter Oliver Betke.
”35” will be released as CD digipak version, limited vinyl version, download and stream.
