Exclusive Video Premiere: The March Divide, "Until I Explode"

Thursday is the new Friday here at ARTISTdirect and this Thursday, we're rocking the premiere of The March Divide's video for "Until I Explode."
The song lives on Billions, out now.
"It's is my favorite song on the album, so I've been excited to see the video that Ben Pien of Doubt Films created for it. Instead of making music videos, he makes my songs the soundtrack to his short films," the band's Jared Putnam told us.
Furthermore, Putnam said, "I was really in a good place writing these releases," and he was referring to Billions and its follow up EP, +1, out February 10.
Riding a wave of nostalgia for the emo bands of the '90s, Putnam's enthusiasm for that oft-maligned, but once again fashionable genre is deep-rooted and sincere. While emo bands are reuniting left and right, playing their old songs for longtime fans, Putnam has been unapologetically writing these types of tunes all along, but from an adult perspective.
With all of this in mind, enjoy The March Divide's video (or this soundtrack to a Ben Pien short film) for "Until I Explode." Ride this wave into the weekend.
