The video sees the band driving around maybe Pennsylvania back roads on a flat bed truck with a mini skate ramp.
Vocalist Ben Barlow had this to say about the track and video:
“As soon as you click play, you’re gonna be hit in the face with a riff! We wanted this to be a fun song; we wanted to make people move, to mosh, jump around and scream the lyrics. And in the lyrics I really just wanted to shed some positivity on a somewhat pessimistic scene. I don’t want our fans to be cutting themselves listening to our music – I wanted people to know that life’s not out to get you. We wanted the video to be as fun as the song. We worked with a director called Kyle Thrash who absolutely killed it. It’s basically us driving through some Pennsylvania back roads on a flat bed truck with a mini skate ramp on it, and we’re playing on the ramp before ending up at a lake where we played in front of a massive firework display! It was pretty sketchy, there was absolutely no health and safety involved, but it was a lot of fun. Thanks to everyone that came down to the shoot, they really helped bring a great vibe and a lot of energy, and I really think that comes across in the video.”
