Blessthefall are back with a brand new music video for their latest single. On Wednesday (Oct. 10), the Phoenix-founded band unleashed the second music video for “Wishful Sinking.” Originally released in February with a different corresponding visual, the new clip finds inspiration from the song’s subject matter and lyrics which make references to drowning and getting caught in the undertow.
The four-and-a-half-minute clip primarily features the band in what looks to be a small and dark room filled with water. As the group begins to play the track in the confined space, the water begins to rise submerging the band members, and their instruments, throughout the video. At one point, each member is seen briefly under the purple current or throwing themselves into the purple abyss.

“Wishful Sinking” is the band’s first song to be written with the help of the record’s producer, Tyler Smyth. The track is featured on Blessthefall’s recently released record, Hard Feelings. Hard Feelings was released in March via Rise Records. The album, the band’s sixth studio album, peaked at the No. 54 spot on the Billboard 200 chart and at the No. 5 spot on Billboard’s Top Alternative Albums chart.
Hard Feelings is the act’s last album to feature longtime drummer Matt Traynor. Traynor announced his departure from the band in August of 2018, citing family as his main reason for leaving the band he had been a part of since its inception. Traynor made his departure official following the group’s Hard Feelings headlining tour with The Word Alive.
