Fastball is about to shoot a video for "Fire Escape," the second single from their album "All The Pain Money Can Buy," the follow-up to their first chart-topping effort, "The Way."
The big-budget shoot will take place in Los Angeles from August 3 to 5, under the auspices of director Francis Lawrence who has most recently graced our screens with Aerosmith's current single, "I Don't Want To Miss A Thing." Other Lawrence credits include Third Eye Blind, Sarah McLachlan and Coolio.
Hollywood Records are remaining mum on plot details.
"It's such a totally weird concept," says the publicist, "we can't really talk about it at this point."
The band has some big shoes to fill, albeit their own. The production of "The Way" won them an MTV Music Awards nomination in the "Best New Artist in a Video" category.
"Fire Escape" will also prove the trio's versatility. Fans of "The Way" may be temporarily confused by the new effort, which features guitarist Miles
Zuniga on vocals. "The Way" was sung by bassist Tony Scalzo.
Fastball is currently wrapping up a tour in Europe and will be embarking on the H.O.R.D.E. festival starting in August. The band is currently planning their own headlining tour for October.
