American rock quartet, Starset, takes us into a video game’s best scenario and real world’s worst nightmare in their new music video “Monster.” Basically the whole humanity is disguising all the shittiness in the apocalyptic earth by escaping to virtual reality. The track is an adrenaline rocker that won’t let you leave the climactic, thundering moment. Turn your life into a video game by blasting “Monster”

“Monster” is from the ban’s second record, Vessels, which will be out on January 20.
