Nothing More have premiered a new video for their song “Let ‘Em Burn.” This track is from the band’s latest album “The Stories We Tell Ourselves.“
The band said the following about the Ben Roberds directed clip:
“Hundreds of people have been killed in mass shootings over the past several years. Almost everyone has chosen the red team or the blue team and we’re stuck in this mode where we fight over political problems instead of human solutions.
More guns or less guns isn’t the question. The real question is, why are we killing each other?”
Frontman Johnny Hawkins added:
“The ‘villain and victim’ narrative in media is so seared into our brains that we can’t see straight. The media has become our God and we have become its bitch.
We are blind to human solutions because our emotions have been glued to political problems, and it has paralyzed our progress.
Most of us know that mental health is the cause of mass shootings, yet we are obsessed with talking about the symptoms and gridlocking ourselves in political battles without proper action.
It’s time to find solutions… it’s time to focus on mental health.”
As previously reported, the group will be hitting the road with Of Mice & Men, Badflower, and Palisades early next year. The band are teaming up with Headcount and To Write Love On Her Arms for the trek and both organizations will have booths at each show. $1 from every ticket sold will go towards To Write Love On Her Arms as well.
