The New Monuments Video For “97% Static” Must Have Been Directed By J.J. Abrams

monuments97staticscreencap

The latest video for “97% Static” from Monuments looks like it was directed by J.J. Abrams. Know why? Lens flares EVERYWHERE! And if lens flares everywhere wasn’t enough, they also added in a kaleidoscope effect to ensure that you got multiple lens flares throughout. The end result? I’m blind. Check out the video below for a dazzling array of light stripes.

“97% Static” comes from Monuments latest album Gnosis (Amazon), which comes out in the US this Tuesday. The band will be touring Europe with Jeff Loomis, Vildhjarta, and Stealing Axion. Tour dates are also below.
