The music video is filled with smoke, water and dust but still offers high-energy performance which is somehow captured in the slow-motion scenes.

go into a slow-motion performance in a music video for their new single "The Catalyst". Mike Shinoda is wearing a black hoodie and sitting motionlessly on the back seat of a car while singing his lines, and frontman is delivering his verses while struggling to keep himself floating in the water.

A lot of smoke and colored dust are used, creating chaos scenes throughout the clip directed by the band's member DJ Joe Hahn. Of his scene, Shinoda told MTV, "My voice is a little tired, because I'm singing on this one. And it's a lot of singing; it's been a long day, a lot of smoke [being used]. Once again, Mr. Hahn is in the driver's seat, and we have faith in where he'll take us."

Dave Farrell previously said, "Joe likes to create things visually, likes to go for something big. So the look of it is very different. There's a lot of energy in it, and for me, that's what makes for a good video. It adds something to the song, and that's what makes me like this particular video even more."

"The Catalyst" itself is the first offering from Linkin Park's soon-to-be-released effort "" which is slated for U.S. release on September 14.
