In anticipation of their forthcoming album If There Is Light, It Will Find You (which hits stores February 16th), Senses Fail has just released an awesome, Billy Madison-inspired music video for their infectious new single “Gold Jacket, Green Jacket…”
“The inspiration for this video is Falling Down meets the clown sing-along part in Billy Madison,” explains vocalist Buddy 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."
While the video is just as fun as Nielsen portrays it (with the perfect amount of glitter too), the lyrics for “Gold Jacket, Green Jacket…” might give off a different vibe with the band singing, “I’m a millennial son of a bitch” and “Fuck yeah I’ve always been anxious, ‘cause I’ve always been in debt and when I was eighteen two planes flew into a fucking building.” So yeah, just a little bit on the dark side.
Nonetheless, “Gold Jacket, Green Jacket…” is Senses Fail at their absolute best. To check out the new song and video, be sure to look below. Afterwards, make sure to not only pre-order If There Is Light, It Will Find You but also grab tickets to see Senses Fail out on tour with Reggie And The Full Effect, Have Mercy, and Household here.
