At Anime Expo, Mike Shinoda of Linkin Park unveiled a preview of his new World’s on Fire music video during Crunchyroll’s panel. Mike was joined onstage by Adam Sheehan, Director of Events, and Victoria Holden, Creative Producer & Brand Manager, at Crunchyroll. Together, the three discussed the history of anime music videos including Linkin Park’s hit song “In the End,” which was frequently featured in fan-made anime videos online. Mike also shared how his personal interest in anime has shaped the inspiration for “World’s on Fire.”

“My music and anime have had a long history crossing paths, from the fan videos edited over Linkin Park’s music, to our original video for ‘Breaking The Habit.’ This new video for ‘World’s On Fire’ is a lighthearted video that focuses on a female protagonist as she learns to control her unique power,” said Mike Shinoda.

The video is slated to premiere later this summer; however, a teaser of the video can be viewed below:
