Five Finger Death Punch Living the Good Life in ‘Sham Pain’ Video
Five Finger Death Punch have found themselves in a few tight scrapes over the years, but have managed to power through everything. It helps if you have a bit of sense of humor about that too, and clearly, they do. Exhibit A: the band's new video for "Sham Pain."
The clip primarily focuses on vocalist Ivan Moody, who we see at the start of the clip sporting an apron and preparing to grill at his trailer as the cops arrive and a meteor comes hurtling his way. Hijinks ensue, but the band still manage to find a way to keep it together, hitting the stage by the end of the video.
"'Sham Pain' is a lyrical snapshot of probably the most chaotic, yet the biggest year of our career," says guitarist Zoltan Bathory said in a press release. "So far, we’ve come out of every bear attack relatively un-scraped, and the band is tighter than ever. Life is not so difficult if you don’t take yourself sooo seriously. As long as you can find the humor in everything you are winning and the winning is strong with this video, as it follows the footsteps of our NOscar winning masterpiece 'Jekyll and Hyde.' It was a simple process: We lit the set on fire and then made our poor director Rob Anderson’s artistic sense into a piñata. Whatever he could salvage became the music video."
The "Sham Pain" video arrives a week out from the band's brand new album. And Justice for None drops on May 18 and it's currently available to pre-order at this location. You can also look for Five Finger Death Punch on the road; see all of their scheduled dates here.
