Exclusive: Madina Lake Premiere Music Video for "Hey Superstar"

Chicago-based alt-rock group Madina Lake are gearing up for the release of their third album, World War III, which comes out September 13 via Razor & Tie.

The album’s release is preceded by the single, “Hey Superstar,” and GuitarWorld.com is proud to present the exclusive premiere of the brand-new music video for "Hey Superstar" below.

The video, which was directed by Andrew Bennett, highlights the band’s DIY attitude and the main concept that runs throughout World War III: survival and triumph through life's unexpected curveballs.

Fans can pre-order special-edition versions of the new album right here.

Madina Lake -- twin brothers Nathan (vocals) and Matthew Leone (bass, vocals), Mateo Camargo (guitar, programming) and Daniel Torelli (drums) -- are on tour this fall. Check out their schedule, just below the video.
