Five Finger Death Punch Releases New Music Video


Rock music superstars, the band Five Finger Death Punch, their new music video for their next single, “I Apologize, ” on July 22. The new song is from their sixth album, Got Your Six. The story of this new video is follows a fascinating narrative. The camera shadows Ivan Moody in a cemetery where many rock legends are laid to rest. The graves of Amy Winehouse, Elvis, Kurt Cobain, and Jimi Hendrix are among those visible in the footage. Directed by Nathan Cox, video was shot at Angelus Rosedale Cemetery in Los Angeles.

The band members disclosed information about the video, explaining its metaphorical imagery. They quote, “The video is a dark somber metaphor that speaks for itself. I don’t think we need a parallel narrative to explain it or emphasize its impact as almost everyone knows someone struggling with some form of addiction. It’s real for everybody. We have even been losing exceptionally bright, talented people who you’d assume know better. No matter how much support you provide, ultimately it’s everyone’s own decision to face their demons or perish.”
