Music video[edit]

The music video for "Escape to the Stars", directed by German director Marcus Sternberg for Free the Dragon, was filmed at the International Congress Centrum in Berlin, Germany in one day. Heavily science fiction influenced, it draws direct inspiration from the movie Blade Runner as Strify stated in an interview in German television. Huge parts of the video were 3d-animated and shot in front of the green screen. The video starts with an orange sunset in a futuristic town with a lot of towers and the band playing in front of a metallic wall on a bridge. Each member has got a single sequence in a different setting, Yu playing the guitar in a room where the lights are lit, looking like a spaceship, Strify sitting on the bench of a huge window with a mirror reflection and the town outside. Between those scenes, spaceships and the animated town can be seen. One scene includes a flying object with screens showing the band members, resembling the cover art for the album Final Attraction There are flying advertisement spaces with messages like "Leave Today" or "Adventure of a lifetime". In the end Strify is sitting in one of the spaceships and is seen leaving the planet aiming to the stars. The video premiered on German music television channel VIVA and according to the band the video was finished on the day of its premiere, the band only having seen an offline version before, with the director himself bringing the video to the music channel an hour before getting on air.
