A two-and-a-half-minute video clip in which guitarists Zoltan Bathory and Jason Hook of Las Vegas metallers FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH talk to ARTISTdirect about the inspiration for their new single and video, “Remember Everything”, can be seen below.
According to The Pulse Of Radio, FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH has ditched the usual performance footage for the “Remember Everything” video. The clip was shot over the course of three days in Los Angeles last month, with the band members taking small cameo roles in the plot-driven narrative. Singer Ivan Moody told Noisecreep, “When we first developed the concept for ‘Remember Everything’, we decided we didn’t want the band performing in the video. There are far too many ego shots of musicians these days playing their instruments in the desert, or churches or random places, that really have nothing to do with the song itself.”
The video opens in a white setting and follows a little boy as he gets older, becomes an adult and eventually joins the military . As the boy continues to grow, he uses other means to create more visuals.
FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH will hit the road in the U.S. and Canada for a spring tour that will kick off on March 23 in Las Vegas.
The group was last seen headlining the Share The Welt tour as the group continues to support its third studio album, 2011’s “American Capitalist”.
