Man Overboard Show Us the Ugly World with “Cliffhanger”

Man Overboard’s new album is set to be released at the end of the month and now the New Jersey-based band have released the music video for another new track off the impending record.

The music video is for the fifth song to be released from Heavy Love, “Cliffhanger.”

The video takes the viewer on a front row look, via  television screen, at all the craziness that is going on around us which most likely has a huge influence on us at the end of the day. Images include fights at hockey games, crazy weather in parts of the country, images from battlefields across the world, stupid reality television programs, and much more that you might need to watch the video a couple of times.

Fuse were the first to premiere the video and got the opportunity to ask guitarist Wayne Wildrick about it.

“What this video is trying to show are the variables out of our control that our jammed down our throats every second of the day that affects the way we perceive and gauge our own success,” explains Wildrick.

“It’s always hard to find yourself between extreme social and political gaps. Punk rock always brought the outside world to the listener’s attention, and it seems that has been lost lately and the focus is more on inner struggle. We believe most of that inner struggle comes from mental oppression, which we portray in the video. We hope you make the connection. And if you don’t that’s okay too. Just bang your head and enjoy the music.”

Watch the video below.

“Cliffhanger” joins previously released tracks “She’s in Pictures,” “Splinter,” “Now That You’re Home,” and “Borderline” on Heavy Love which is due out on June 30 through Rise Records.
