Violent Idols debuted the video for its latest single this week.
The band premiered the video for its latest single, ‘Revenge‘ Wednesday. The single will be available to stream and download April 7, almost a year after the release of its then latest single, ‘F*** You.’ That song featured guest vocals from Gemini Syndrome front man Aaron Nordstrom.
The video features Violent Idols’ enigmatic front man “V” in a hallway with a shining light behind him, walls on either side as he sings against the song, which plays over the simple visual. The visual of the light shining on that darkness of the hallway is meant to help translate the message in the song’s lyrical theme.
The band talked about the song’s lyrical theme in a prepared statement.
”This band has always been about looking the monster inside right in the eye and staring it down,” the statement reads. “‘Revenge’ is no exception. With social media we all always seem so caught up in only showing our best selves. But that’s not all we are. You really only know somebody after you’ve seen the worst side of them; yourself included. When you confront the depths of your own darkness, you begin to lift that veil.”
“It’s easy to say you’d turn the other cheek while sitting in an ivory tower,” the statement continues. “But when the blood of someone you love ends up on the hands of your enemy, what do you do? A lot of people don’t like to ask themselves that question. They don’t want to know what the monster inside of them looks like.”
The musical arrangement that accompanies the song’s resonating lyrical theme is an industrial type work that will appeal to fans of bands, such as Orgy, Spineshank, and Apartment 26.
