In an interview with People, frontman Claudio Sanchez talked about how his wife and their relationship inspired the music video:

When I think of these two iconic characters, I think of opposite attraction. I think of myself and my wife. How two opposite ends of a spectrum can create harmony and balance. In one way or another, these characters have been paired up with like-minded love interests, the Bat and the Cat [Batman and Catwoman] … The Alien and the Amazonian [Superman and Superwoman]… I wanted to bring the Dark and the Light together.

The entertaining clip takes us into the daily life of a Batman costumed character as he goes about his day amusing people in Times Square, New York. SPOILER ALERT: The clip takes a turn when the two go at it (and we really mean go at it). If you’ve ever noticed unintentional homo-erotic vibes from a movie, it’s pretty funny to see them when they’re 100% intentional.

It’s worth noting that this music video has no official connection with the movie Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which will be released in movie theaters around the world later this month… Ben Affleck definitely has a tough act to follow.

Previous music videos the band has shared from the album are “Here To Mars” and “You Got Spirit, Kid.”

The Color Before The Sun is currently available on Amazon (Vinyl, CD, MP3). You can also stream the full album for free here on Zumic.
