    According to MTVLA, The Catalyst music video will debut on their website August 26th, however with the international CD release of The Catalyst being August 27th, it seems unlikely that the video would not be aired sooner to promote the single. Unless they are referring to the single release date, we will probably see this much sooner. Watch this space.

    "The Catalyst" will have its respective video (can see it here on its release day: Thursday 26 August), and will be the first single from "A Thousand Suns".

    August 26th seems a bit late to release the clip I think.

    Not good at all.
    You need the music with the clip.
    That was one of the problems with 'New Divide'.
    The single did great the first week, but went straight to the buttom the week after.
    It only started to gain momentum when the music video hit. I thought
    they would've learnt their lesson by now

    That's really unusual for LP too... All their leading singles' music videos so far have released same day as the single, or very shortly thereafter... Haven't they? I'm pretty sure SIB was, and I know WID was. Hell, maybe I'm just remembering wrong...

    If it does come out on the 26th Aug, I assume the footage is heavy on the effects department.
    I'm guessing, the clip will be black & white. Then balls of paint splatter on them in extreme slow motion.
    Obviously the paint will be in color, however the final outcome will be one big colorful mess. The final shot
    will look almost like an art piece.

    I'm just guessing here of course :)

    The first time I saw SIB was the actual video on T.V, I also remember being the first person on this forum to see the BTH video on Kerrang TV in the UK. If anyone can remember that awesome thread from back in the day, respect! :lol: I feel things have changed since then though, I'm sure we'll get this soon. I'll be REALLY surprised if it is the 26th.

    That so close to what I was thinking of and what I was about to post. Great minds think alike! Im guessing they're gonna have paint hit them in slowmo and chester is gonna do his famous monkey jump. Break a leg chesstaah.

    They could also do something like mutemath did by filming it in reverse and having the paint come off them.

    Come to think of it, Eminem's single 'I'm not Afraid' came out pretty late after the release. Also his new single 'Love the way you lie' still doesn't have a music video yet it's #1 on the charts

    I think Joe Hahn's great, don't get me wrong.
    However I would love to see an LP music video done by the hands of Joseph Kahn or Rich Lee.

    Or a bunch of execs are filmed throwing paint onto the members of the band during their performance and its presented in reverse. Of the glory of chucking paint onto your fave band.
    I had an idea that there would be an elephant that shoots paint out of its trunk onto the band - lulz.

    :p! I thought most would be excited cause Mr. Hahn is the boss of LP videos! Most of their videos is directed by him or him with help.
