  • The anthemic song's music video finds the Escape The Fate band members in dangerous territory, as they become the targets of some female magicians. Frontman Craig Mabbitt not only stars in the clip, but he also had a hand in directing it as well. He told Loudwire: "I do see myself [directing] more. I enjoy it a lot. I've always been a guy who likes coming up with the concepts of the video."

    "To actually be able to be behind the camera, talk about what shots you want to see, what shots you want to get. It was really enjoyable, especially if you are the person in the band and it's something that you want to portray," Mabbitt added. "You obviously want to do something that you want to do, so I had the opportunity to do it. I had a lot of fun with it. I really want to do it more in the future, and hopefully I can. Hopefully people like this video and everyone on our team and behind the scenes likes the video so the next one pops up and I say I want to do it, it's an automatic green light."
