blessthefall, ‘You Wear a Crown, But You’re No King’ – Exclusive Video Premiere
Metalcore heroes blessthefall have just unleashed their latest album, ‘Hollow Bodies,’ and Loudwire is proud to team up with the band to premiere the official music video for their new single ‘You Wear a Crown, But You’re No King’ (watch above).
Led by singer Beau Bokan and featuring Eric Lambert (guitar), Elliott Gruenberg (guitar), Jared Warth (bass / vocals) and drummer Matt Traynor (drums), blessthefall have built up an incredible following through their previous albums and energetic live shows. Now, with the disc ‘Hollow Bodies,’ blessthefall are taking their music to even greater heights.
‘You Wear a Crown, But You’re No King’ is a blistering track that combines pure aggression in its verses with melodic bliss in its chorus. The video, directed by Brad Golowin, features the band rocking out in the middle of a forest as pits of fire surround them. The clip also cuts away to scenes of a hooded Bokan chopping wood in the dark of night, with an eye-catching finale that you’ll have to see for yourself.
“This video was definitely the most dangerous thing we’ve ever done as a band,’ Bokan tells Loudwire. “We had three cannons literally shooting flames 30 feet into the air and about 50 burning logs all around us. The entire fire department was there watching the whole thing with hoses ready, not to mention they had a medi-vac helicopter on call in case anyone was severely injured. I did actually light my arm on fire, it was the coolest (and the hottest) moment of my life. We were about 45 minutes from Houston in the middle of absolutely nowhere and filmed until 5AM. We party.”
The band kicks off a European tour with August Burns Red in September, followed by a UK tour in October and a Stateside trek with August Burns Red, Defeater and Beartooth in November. See their full list of tour dates here.
