Five Finger Death Punch has revealed a brand new Las Vegas lockdown video for its latest single ‘A Little Bit Off’.
‘A Little Bit Off’, is the second official music video to be unveiled from the bands latest album, ‘F8’ (2020).
The video is described as “a snapshot of unprecedented times” and sees frontman Ivan Moody wandering the deserted streets of Las Vegas amid the coronavirus lockdown.
The idea of the music video for ‘A Little Bit Off’ was conceptualised by 5FDP guitarist and founder Zoltan Bathory who said: “Our new record, ‘F8’, came out right at the exact moment COVID-19 smashed into western society and (naturally) all attention was diverted to the pandemic. It placed us in a difficult situation, where on one hand this is probably the best album we have ever made.”
“On the other, it felt insensitive to promote a record on full-tilt boogie while people were dying all across the world, businesses closed down, and the economy went face down in a ditch. “
“Since it affects all public events, and tours are cancelled for who knows how long, artists also became victims of the fallout. So we decided to make this video a snapshot of the unprecedented times and underline it with some humor to at least lighten the overall gloomy vibes. However, here we are today ready to release it… but thinking once again … is it insensitive to debut the video now that the world is on fire? I guess this will turn out to be the anthem for 2020… We are all ‘a little bit off today.'”
