Set It Off seriously set it off this week.
The band debuted the video for its new single ‘Hypnotized’ this week. Directed by Matt Alonzo (Xzibit, Tyrese, The Game), the high, energy video sees the band performing its new single in a specially lit set with plenty of fast-paced cuts and special lighting. Audiences can see the video online now here.
Front man Cody Carson said creating the video for ‘Hypnotized’ was just an important process for the band, adding he hoped the band’s fans would enjoy the partnering of the song and its new video.
“We are extremely proud to present the music video for our latest single ‘Hypnotized,’ Carson said. “Writing this song was an extremely cathartic experience with all of that pent up pent-up anger being let out; Making this video felt no different. We understand how important it is to be able to let out your anger, unleash your inner demons and just act out every once in a while. Songs like this allow you to do that.”
‘Hypnotized’ is taken from the band’s latest full-length studio recording, 2016’s Upside Down, which was released via Equal Vision Records. The record debuted at No. 10 on Billboard’s Digital Albums Chart; No. 10 on its Independent Albums Chart; No. 11 on its Alternative Albums Chart; No. 13 on the Top Rock Albums Chart; No. 20 on the Tastemakers Chart; No. 22 of To Current Albums Chart and No. 51 on Billboard’s Top 200 Albums Chart. The Top 200 ranking made Upside Down Set It Off’s highest charting album to date.
