“… that’s kind of the essence of Outernational. We’re a band. We’re not a political organization. We may be involved with different things, but as a band, we’re trying to jump start … a next wave of revolutionary culture among a new generation of young people and people all around the world.”

Outernational: The Beginning is Here

Much has been written about Outernational‘s “Todos Somos Ilegales.” The video for the pro-humanity anthem features Tom Morello, Chad Smith, Residente from Calle 13 and 100 fans proclaiming, “Todos Somos Ilegales!”

But #TODOS isn’t the band’s only music video. Check out “The Beginning is Here,” which was directed by Jessica Habie and produced by Misfit Media’s Nicole Brydson. (Nicole is also Outernational’s web designer/guru.)

This is one of my favorite songs on the album, which you can download by naming your own price here. It was shot while the band was on tour in the Southwest. Check out one of Leo Mintek’s (guitarist) tour diaries here.
