With a handful of hours left before beginning their first tour of the new year, Senses Fail have given fans a brand new music video to celebrate. On Friday (Jan. 4), the New Jersey-founded band released the music video for their latest single, “Elevator to the Gallows.” the newly released clip finds the guys getting a crash course on how to win pop star Demi Lovato’s affection.
The four-minute clip begins with the guys walking through an area of desolate warehouses with barbwire and gates. Upon knocking on the gate of one of the warehouses, they are instantly welcomed by drag performer and former “RuPaul’s Drag Race” contestant Tammie Brown.
As the camera pans to a whiteboard, the band is instantly thrown into a course titled “How to Win Demi Lovato’s Love.” Of course insanity ensues almost as quickly as they go through training which includes learning how to dance, exercising, getting some serious fashion sense, and learning what her favorite snack is (pickles? really?). It’s also hard to ignore how frontman Buddy Nielsen is rocking a Demi Lovato tee throughout most of the clip.
“We are all big fans of Demi. We’ve tried to [at] her on Twitter but to no avail! So we took the logical next step and made a video devoted to winning her attention,” the band say in statement.
“Having personally struggled with addiction, I know all too well what Demi has been through. We want her to know Senses Fail loves her and wishes her the very best! Your best friends who you don’t know yet, Senses Fail.”
Funnily enough, several hours after the video made its debut, Lovato tweeted the band: “Also- I love you Senses Fail. Your video is everything.”

“Elevator to the Gallows” is featured on Senses Fail’s recently released record, If There Is Light, It Will Find You. The album, the group’s seventh studio album, was released in February of 2018.
In support of the album, the band announced late last year plans to embark on a co-headlining tour with the Amity Affliction. The “Misery Will Find You” tour will begin tonight (Jan. 4) at the House of Blues in Anaheim and conclude a month or so later on Feb. 9 at the Regent in Los Angeles.
Following some mishaps with a previously announced supporting act, Silent Planet and Belmont will hit the road with the two bands throughout the excursion. The complete list of tour dates can be seen here.
