“For this video I had a vision of a modern ‘Bonnie & Clyde’ with a dark twist. The timing of the release at Halloween could not have been better, the stars aligned,” said Thomas. “It’s a big story to tell in a short amount of time, but the journey flows perfectly in sync with the song and comes full circle… Each time you watch it you take away something new, and I love that.”

Earlier this year, Thomas released an animated lyric video for What’s On Your Mind (Pure Energy), originally recorded by American new wave band Information Society. This cover showcased his dynamic diversity between tackling instruments and vocals, breathing new life into the notable hit. “The new single ‘Take Me’ picks up where my cover of ‘What’s On Your Mind’ left off…both sonically & stylistically,” says Thomas. “It’s got an infectious hook and delivers a modern rock/pop punch that will rattle your fillings with its arena sized anthem. The track is layered with blistering guitars, thundering drums, sub drops & sweeps…it was really amazing to see it all come together.”
“The video for ‘Take Me’ is a whole other monster in itself,” Thomas explains enthusiastically. “When I came up with the concept it all fell into place seamlessly with the song. Like any Epic, there are 3 acts to the story, which was going to be ambitious to tell in under four minutes…and what we ended up with was a supernatural tale that, from start to finish, delivers a wild ride in the form of a mini movie.”
Thomas also penned the track Alive for Adler’s New York Times Best Selling autobiography My Appetite For Destruction, which made its world premiere on The Howard Stern Show, and was featured on ESPN, MTV and VH1 among others. In addition to his work with Adler, Thomas has collaborated with an array of artists from Snoop Dogg to members of American Idol and The Voice.
