With a few short weeks left before hitting the touring circuit once more, Sum 41 has returned with a brand new music video. On Tuesday (June 11), the Canadian band released the clip for their latest single, “A Death in the Family.”
The four-minute video begins with an old-school Hollywood countdown on the screen. Once it reaches zero, the screen changes to some kind of transmission with the word “searching” and the band’s name displaying on a black background.
The viewer soon finds themselves zooming through space, down to Earth, to the middle fo a warehouse district. The scenery rapidly changes to the inside of a building where two versions of Sum 41 appears; one from 1969 and the present incarnation of the band.
Throughout the clip, we watch as the two versions of the band perform the song in the same exact room (with a 50-year difference) while a creepy person is situated in a control room watching this. The video comes to an end with the lyric “your lies will tear us apart” appearing on the screen.
Watch the Dale Rage Resteghini-directed music video above.
“A Death in the Family” will join previously released track “Out for Blood” on Sum 41’s forthcoming album.
Order in Decline is due out July 19 through Hopeless Records. Pre-orders are available for purchase here. All pre-orders will come with instant downloads of both “Out for Blood” and “A Death in the Family.”
Order in Decline is the follow-up to 2016’s 13 Voices.
Sum 41 announced the release of their seventh studio album back in April. According to the band, the forthcoming record will be their “heaviest and most aggressive album to date, while also being their most dynamic and raw.”
Later this month, the group will join the Used, Circa Survive, and Thrice on the inaugural Rockstar Energy Drink Disrupt Festival. The 25-stop tour begins on June 21 at the Dos Equis Pavilion in Dallas and concludes a month later on July 28 at the Isleta Amphitheater in Albuquerque.
