Linkin Park unveiled their latest music video earlier this week.  The clip is for "Burning in the Skies", the latest single from their concept album, A Thousand Suns.

The Agoura Hills, CA band has been churning out quite the ethereal videos lately, and "Burning in the Skies" is no exception.  You can watch the end-of-the-world vid below.

It starts off with shots of different groups of people, including teenagers partying, a depressed girl in the bathroom, a little boy playing by himself, a student studying, and face shots of an old Asian man.  By the way, I hope that's not my future.  He looks really depressed.

There are also scenes of a young teenage couple about to share their first kiss in the dude's car.  Just as they're about to smooch, an explosion of white light appears and everyone goes into slow-motion mode.  The theme of the video reminds me of Donnie Darko.  It even includes creepy animal masks.
