Senses Fail have returned with another new track from their upcoming new album, If There Is A Light, It Will Find You. On Thursday (Jan. 11), the New Jersey-founded band released the music video for their latest single “Gold Jacket, Green Jacket.” The over-three-minute clip finds frontman Buddy Nielsen not exactly having a very good day with his encounters with people.
First we see him involved in a car crash, but not really caring as he sits there drinking his coffee. Then, as he’s running away, he makes a set of construction workers drop something they were carrying while a poor, unfortunate pizza delivery man gets caught in the mess. As if that isn’t enough, Nielsen has an encounter with a group of close-minded protesters who are in process of protesting the LGBTQ community. While a slew of bad things seem to be happening, at the end everyone involved get sprayed with glitter and their angry tendencies disappear as they head to a house party / jam session with the rest of Senses Fail.
“The inspiration for this video is Falling Down meets the clown sing-along part in Billy Madison,” explains Nielsen. “The idea was to basically have people coming at me for various reasons but I am able to stave them all off and have them join in on the fun with a glitter bomb. Nothing makes a bad time more fun than a little glitter. Overall I just wanted to have a video that was fun and left you feeling good about the world and life.”
“Gold Jacket, Green Jacket” will join “Double Cross” on Senses Fail’s upcoming seventh studio album. If There Is A Light, It Will Find You will be released on Feb. 16 through Pure Noise Records. Pre-orders for the album are currently available on the band’s website here.
In support of the album’s new release, Senses Fail will hit the road at the end of February alongside Reggie and the Full Effect, Have Mercy, and Household. The upcoming tour will kick off on Feb. 27 at The Observatory in Santa Ana, California and conclude over a month later on March 31 at the Brooklyn Bowl in Las Vegas.
