A Message from JARED:

Someone once said…”Work is the bridge between dreams and reality”. So just be warned: if you have big dreams be ready for a ton of work. :)

So there we were. Deadline city. Once again. A lyric video was needed. We were way past deadline and without any real options in sight. We were getting desperate. Having just finished Do Or Die and already shooting / editing City Of Angels there wasn’t much time to get one in order. Esp one worthy to share with you all. So I said F*ck it, grabbed my camera, went up to the hills of Hollywood and shot. We came back with this. Its mostly one take, a couple cut aways. But very simple overall and sometimes that’s for the best.

This footage will definitely be a part of the short film for City Of Angels. So, its a taste of things to come.

We got really lucky with some incredibly gorgeous light and maybe some magic from an Owl that kept us company during shooting. If u look close you can even see him fly right by me.

Really nice to be able to share such a beautiful sunset with you all.

Stay tuned for the short film coming #soon…

    Like they say: no pain, no gain… your music and your videos always amaze me. Stay just the way you are, guys, we just ♡ you.


    in many occasions already i have commented that i believe that you are a combination of originality and dedication because of it your letters they reveal passion what does that all your fans you continue being unconditionally faithful,for my 30STM they are described as perfection and City of Angels is the victory of one long and hard way. you are the number one. i am Spanish,sit my English.

  • birgit mülders

    i read just the message ,of jared to us and its really true, the bridge between dreams and reality is sometimes very small and hard to go , and sometimes little things that you share give you more back than you think to believe ,that is a kind of art i love most of you , its works , because you love what you do and we can feel it ,dont change your mind ,thank you that you are so speziell.. thank that you are here . i cant see it in germany , but i feel it must be perfect and i love owls.

  • Natashia

    Got to say that this is an amazing short film and if the rest of the city of angels video is as brill as this i want to see more, i love do or die i so cant wait to experience the mars concert again in November and LA is so gorgeous when you get the sunsets over the hills and work, work, work and plot and achieve and those dreams will come true i know mine are gradually. Hope one day to see a dvd with all these little short films on as that is what they are not music videos. Best wishes and a huge thank you for sharing your inspiration and words with us all xo
