Set It Off Debuts ‘Hourglass’ Video

Set It Off debuted the music video for its latest single this week.

The band debuted the video for its single ‘Hourglass‘  Friday.  The video finds the band’s front man Cody Carson in a desert setting, visited by a not so nice figure and a group of robed women who don’t seem to mean him any good as he sings about the choices we make in life.  The song’s musical arrangement is such that it will fit easily into any mainstream Top 40 radio programmer’s list.

A picture held by an elderly gentleman at the video’s opening hints that the setting is a purgatory — a place where the soul goes to make amends for the sins of life.  Considering the seeming message of the song’s lyrical theme, the setting would seem to fit.

‘Hourglass’ is just the latest entry in Set It Off’s current list of songs to be released from its latest album.  Prior to its release, the band also released the singles ‘Midnight Thoughts,’ ‘For You Forever,’ ‘Dancing With The Devil,’ ‘Lonely Dance‘ and ‘Killer in the Mirror.’

Set It Off has dropped two more songs from its upcoming album.

The band debuted the songs ‘For You Forever‘ and ‘Dancing With The Devil‘ on Dec. 14. The songs are the third and fourth singles to come from Midnight, which is currently scheduled for release Feb. 1 via Fearless Records.

The video for the album’s lead single, ‘Killer in the Mirror‘ debuted July 24, while the video for its follow-up, ‘Lonely Dance‘ premiered Nov. 19. The album’s full, 15-song track listing is noted below.

MIDNIGHT TRACK LISTING:
1. “Killer In The Mirror”
2. “Hourglass”
3. “Lonely Dance”
4. “Different Songs”
5. “For You Forever”
6. “Dancing With The Devil”
7. “Go To Bed Angry” [feat. Wayfarers]
8. “Midnight Thoughts”
9. “Criminal Minds”
10. “No Disrespect”
11. “Stitch Me Up”
12. “Raise No Fool”
13. “I Want You (Gone)” [feat. Matt Appleton]
14. “Unopened Windows”
15. “Happy All The Time” [feat. Skyler Acord]

Set It Off front man Cody Carson explained the concept behind both of the band’s new songs in a recent interview.  Carson said ‘For You Forever’ is a work that looks back on his own past relationships, and examines how much he has grown and changed over time.

“About ‘For You Forever,” [It’s] my way of putting myself in the shoes of someone else when I was single,” Carson said.  “I was stubborn, I didn’t want a serious relationship, and I’d always let the other person know that.  However, sometimes feelings grew, and I pushed them away because I felt I wasn’t ready, but it wouldn’t always stop them  from waiting for me.  This song collects the multitude of emotions that circulated through those situations from start, to end, to even how their friends may have advised them.  It was a seriously humbling and vulnerable song to write, but sometimes you have to call yourself out.”

He said of ‘Dancing With The Devil’ that it focuses on certain negative situations in life, and the role that those situations play in our personal development.

“‘Dancing With The Devil’ is a story of betrayal,” Carson said.  “It unfortunately happens more often than it should that someone we work with or someone we get close to in our lives feeds us lines of support and love, reels us in with a false sense of connection, and then whenever they feel like we can’t feed their needs, they cut the line and watch us drown.  To me, that severance is fuel.  That betrayal and abandonment is a reason to prove something, and the chip on the shoulder grows.  This world is a tough place, but we have to be tougher and keep our eyes open so we don’t end up ‘Dancing With The Devil.’

Pre-orders for Midnight are open now.  The album was produced by Mike Green (Neck Deep, All Time Low, State Champs) and Brandon Paddock (Panic! At The Disco, Papa Roach, The Used, Daughtry).
