Born Of Osiris Premiere “Under The Gun” Live Video

Born Of Osiris have premiered a new live video for their song “Under The Gun.” This track is from the band’s latest album “The Simulation.“ Lee McKinney commented:

“The first time we played ‘Under The Gun‘ live, it only took a few seconds to realize we had something special with the song. The crowd would already be jumping during the intro before the band even kicked in and it never would let up. For that reason, we filmed the song every night for six weeks and compiled the footage into what you see today…”
