VEVO has exclusively premiered the new music video from GRAMMY award-winning band Blues Traveler for the song “Blow Up The Moon” off their April 7th release of the same name, Blow Up The Moon.  “Blow Up The Moon,” featuring Blues Traveler with JC Chasez and 3OH!3 – watch it below, was created using the new Rockstar Games Rockstar Editor, a special feature in Grand Theft Auto V for PC that allows players to record, edit, and share videos created from footage in both Story Mode and GTA Online.  All of the live action shots were filmed on GoPros.

"Our video director, Will Schmidt, came to us with the idea of using Rockstar Editor in Grand Theft Auto V and we were intrigued and psyched to try it out,” said the band. “We thought it would be a cool idea to create a music video using the technology they provide and since we haven’t seen anyone else out there doing this yet, we thought it would be a great idea for the song.   We are over the moon with the results.  We think the video turned out great and hope our fans and the fans of GTA will love it too."
