2. The Devil Wears Prada released their new video for "Worldwide!"
TDWP have enlisted their friend Casey Pierce to direct his third video for the band, as they've released the production for their song "Worldwide" today via Metal Hammer Germany.
Lead singer Mike Hranica them, "This 'Worldwide' video has been many months in the making. The video was directed by Casey Pierce, his third for our band. We think very highly of Casey and how he can execute what he and I come up with for a treatment. The chorus feels very modern, which is one of the primary principles we wanted in the video. How far Casey has come along is most evident; it's hard to believe that the world he created all came from his own hands."

9. And finally today, American Opera are streaming a new single in anticipation to their debut release.
Off the debut full-length album Small Victories, out June 30 on Spartan Records, vocalist and guitarist John Bee has release a new animated lyric video as American Opera.
"Sidewalks" debuted today over at Chorus.fm, which also features guest vocalist Meeko.
Commenting on the video, Bee says, ""Sidewalks" is about two lost souls fumbling their way through life. Two complete strangers who walk the same streets, looking for the same thing, but they never find it because they are too scared, too lost, too hurt, too far gone. The help they need, the people they need, everything they need is right there in front of them. They just can't see it because they are blinded by life. They live in their own worlds that are the result of every moment, every interaction, every fleeting thought they have ever had. They are blinded by their own shit. They can't see each other."
