Mixtape #3, New Divide video

May 14, 2009

A New mixtape is up in the music section. I had started it a few months ago, and finally got around to finishing it up. I went a little heavier on it.

Also, we’re shooting the video for New Divide today. I’ll have some pictures up from the shoot shortly. Joe is directing, and we’re doing the video in a cave in Egypt.

    Hey Mike, congrats to another great song! Im sure that New Divide will be as successful as What I’ve done – at least. I am really looking forward to seeing the video. Hope there’ll be a storyline as I really enjoyed the vids on When my time comes and Shadow of the Day – it’s simply nicer to watch than seing the band on stage LOL!!!
    Thumbs up and all the best to the rest of the band. You all do a great job. Keep it coming cause we’re waiting…:~))))

    Hey Mike, good work on New Divide๐Ÿ™‚

    Just wondering, if, in one of your future mix tapes you could chuck a Deftones song in there somewhere. Something with a cool groove like “Around the Fur” or “7 Words”.

    would be pretty sweet.

    Take it easy,

  5. soyuneik on May 18, 2009 at 12:40 pm

    I listened to this when you posted it and I loved it. That’s funny I was just listening to…”it’s one of those conversations we’ve, we’ve had them before” ..ha

  6. msgirl on May 18, 2009 at 4:51 am

    mike!i have got 8 hours 56min to listen to the new song….omg….but itยดs almost night in my country…..how can i sleep huh?๐Ÿ™‚ hey…..when is your glorious excess going to die?

  7. analoggirl on May 16, 2009 at 1:11 pm

    Thanks for the new mixtape! The mashups are seamless. PE over Ministry is love. โค
    Also, I’m looking forward to the video for “New Divide.” (Random question: Why do Michael Bay-esque action movies blow up the Eiffel Tour and the Pyramids? Is there nothing left in their bag of tricks? lol)

    OMG EGYPT! I’ve never been there, so be sure to tape EVERYTHING as you usually do guys, I freaking love behind the scenes and making of your videos! I’m sure Joe will do a great job, full of special effects and awesome stuff; you will all have fun and Chester will end up being more stupid than ever: tell him we love him when he does that!!! can’t wait to hear ‘New divide’ that from the trailer seems to kick asses, update soon!โค

  39. cuz on May 14, 2009 at 1:24 pm

    Great mixtape, thanks for it! Can’t wait to get the whole New Divide and a video for it. That’s gonna be awesome! I’ve watched the trailer like a one billion trillion times to date and it makes me so crazy! Have a nice day๐Ÿ™‚

  40. Stephie5 on May 14, 2009 at 1:17 pm

    Hope everything is kool with you and the others! bet eygpt is lush! Can’t wait to see the new video! definitely come back to Milton Keynes, or the UK in general! I also love the art work you do! I study graphics at uni. I have always wondered what your inspiration is?!? Take care dude, Keep us updated xoxo

  41. RachaelLP on May 14, 2009 at 1:08 pm

    When the Levee Breaks. Love it <3333

    And i don’t know how i am coping with the excitement for the all the new stuff =D.

  42. Curiosa on May 14, 2009 at 12:54 pm

    You’re back! hugs Have to say I wasn’t sure what to think of Chester but he’s pretty cool (for a Sun’s fan๐Ÿ˜› ) & smooth. I can see why he’s had 3 wives. Definitely a cool guy though.๐Ÿ™‚ I’ve enjoyed chatting w/him.๐Ÿ™‚

    No offense but the new song kinda sounds like What I’ve Done but better (WID not being my favorite song). We already discussed it on fmmb. Short discussion since we all agreed. Anyway, can’t wait for the video & the movie.๐Ÿ™‚ TC

  43. Janine1978new on May 14, 2009 at 12:19 pm

    Mike, thanks for the download. I can’t wait to hear the full song and to see the new video.

    LP ROCKS

  49. bojkic on May 14, 2009 at 11:31 am

    HAHAHAHAHA :D! Of course you are making New divine video in egypt, but in CGI๐Ÿ˜€ nice trick man.๐Ÿ˜€ Can’t wait to see it. Joe is really one of the kind and you can never predict what’s he going to do next! His imagination and way of thinking are outta this world. Will we wait for the video long after monday?
    Song sounds awesome too! Can wait to get it! however iTunes doesn’t sell songs in my country… Maybe you could offer it through some other online stores too. I’ll grab the CD eventually for sure.

    MIXTAPE IS JUST GREAT MIKE!!!! ENJOYING IT FOR SECOND TIME ALREADY!๐Ÿ˜€ thx, thx, thx, thx, thx, thx, thx, thx, thx, thx, thx, thx, thx, thx, thx, thx, thx, thx, thx for the effort!

Anyway, can’t wait to hear the new divide. I heard that you and Chester are doing a interview, hope we will see the footage soon.
