Story Untold surprised their fans with the announcement of signing to Hopeless Records, as well as releasing a new music video for their song “History,” off of their new EP. Lucky us… three big announcements in one day!? And what’s not to love?
The music video took a comical yet meaningful approach. It starts with the band entering a building called “Battle of the Bands,” however it’s not what you may think it is! It’s actually a fight club for bands. You may have expected something different but the direction Story Untold took cleverly intertwined the message of the song perfectly. As the music starts, we are welcomed by the band performing the song and from the moment you hear the first note being played, you can immediately predict it’s catchiness but is that a surprise?
Like the song, the video delivers the message to try your best and never give up despite of what people say about you - this is demonstrated by making the band members fight someone who has an advantage but by sticking to two goals: to “make history” and to “rise up high above the rest,” they defeated their opponents. The drummer, Mehdi Zidani, suffered a different fate however. His opponent was a girl and he underestimated her, leading to his defeat. This ties back into the overall message of the song - never underestimate someone because you do not know they what they are truly capable of.
Story Untold gets a solid 9 out of 10 for this music video! The melody makes this song very memorable and the message that the song and video portrays together is very powerful and motivational! Head on over to iTunes to pick up the EP and be sure to let us know your thoughts!
