Lindsey Stirling Takes On The Fury Road In Mad Max-Inspired Music Video

There should have been a violin in Immortan Joe's war band.

We’re all about nerdy violin medleys, and violinist/performance artist Lindsey Stirling has been the creator of several of them. On June 28 she announced the upcoming release of her third studio album, “Brave Enough”–and shortly after that, the video for the first single off that album, “The Arena”, was uploaded to her official YouTube channel.

One glance at this video and the inspiration is clear–this is giving me some serious Mad Max: Fury Road vibes, from the environment to the costumes on each spectator in the arena. There’s also another cameo I’m pretty excited about–professional dancer Derek Hough (who also made an adorable appearance dancing with Gina Rodriguez on Jane the Virgin this past season)–is here to perform with Lindsey, and whoo. Girl’s got some serious dance moves.

Stirling’s third album, “Brave Enough”, will be released on August 19.
