KALEO Release Stunning Video Performance In Front Of An Active Volcano

Icelandic alt-rockers have a new album on the way and have just released a one-of-a-kind music video of a performance in front of an actual live volcano. Surface Sounds is their third studio album and is set for public consumption on April 23.

The first two singles from the project were released in January of last year with other tracks released in March and April. The album release date was pushed back due to the pandemic and we’re finally going to have an opportunity to hear the rest.

On March 24 frontman JJ Julius Son performed in front of the erupting Fagradalsfjall volcano (just don’t ask us how to properly pronounce it). The resulting footage is strikingly beautiful and we can’t help but wonder what was going through his mind as the filming was underway.

Best known for their breakthrough single ‘Way Down We Go’, it’s exciting to see this next chapter for the band get underway. It’s not KALEO’s first time getting up close and personal with a volcano. Back in 2015, they released a full band performance actually inside a dormant magma chamber. Well played indeed.

Lyrics:

What makes you feel good?
What makes you angry inside?

Why don’t you love me?
You want to fuck me or fight?

You never asked me
If I had something to hide

You want to hurt me
I’ll make it easy tonight

You’ve got to stay skinny
Don’t you, girl?
You’ve got to stay pretty
While you can
You’ve got to stay hungry
For the fans

Or they’ll try to burn you all out
They’ll try to burn you all out

Your face is rotten
Ugliest smile I have seen

Your name is forgotten
Now go on and cut yourself clean

Why won’t you answer?
You think you’re better than me?

Go on surrender
Another suicide teen

You’ve got to stay skinny
Don’t you girl
You’ve got to stay pretty
As you were
You know we are living
In a fucked up world

And they’ll try to burn you all up
They’re going to burn you all up

Oh I’m burning out now
Oh I’m burning out
Can you feel me burning out
Oh I’m burning out

You’ve got to stay skinny
Don’t you girl
You’ve got to stay pretty
While you can
You know we are living
In this fucked up world

And they’re going to burn you all up
They’re going to burn you all out
