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.

Don’t forget to catch Man Overboard this Summer on the Vans Warped Tour.

It was just yesterday that Man Overboard revealed they would be releasing a new album titled Heavy Love this Summer.

Not even 24 hours after they unveiled the official announcement by using the famous last scene of The Sopranos, the band have released not one, but three music videos for three tracks off of the impending release.

The videos, which can be seen below, are for the following three songs: “Splinter,” “Now That You’re Home,” and “Borderline.”

The three new tracks will join previously released song, “She’s in Pictures” on Heavy Love due out on June 30 through Rise Records. Pre-orders for the new album are currently available on the band’s website.

In support of the new record, the New Jersey band will be hitting the road this Summer as one of many (and we mean many) bands joining the 2015 Vans Warped Tour.

Man Overboard Announce ‘Heavy Love’

Last October, Man Overboard released their Passing Ends EP and quickly revealed they would be heading back into the studio to record a new full-length album.

Now, the time has come and the band have revealed that not only is that new album finished, but that it will be heading our way this Summer.

The New Jersey-based band announced the news in a three-minute clip in which they also revealed the names of the songs through an old-school, tabletop jukebox. As the (iconic) clip plays, the song playing in the background is one of the new tracks off the record; a song titled “She’s in Pictures.”

Check out the announcement for Heavy Love below.

Heavy Love is set to be released on June 30 through Rise Records. This marks the band’s full-length follow-up to 2013’s Heart Attack.

Earlier this year, the “save pop-punk” group teamed up with Senses Fail to released a split with each band covering a track from the other’s discography.
