“We didn’t have a concept like filth. We wanted to broaden our music videos and not rely on a story in every one of them to present the music.
We went for a simple band performance video. No bells no whistles. Just the song and the band rocking out. With the other videos that will be released in the future having a band performance video felt right on the list of band things to do.” Facing The Gallows said.
