The Story

Handguns are teaming up with AP to bring you the premiere of their new music video for “The Loved Ones Who Hate Us.” The track is taken from the band’s sophomore full-length, Life Lessons, which is officially out today (July 8) via Pure Noise Records.

"The song is about the way important relationships can seem to fade when you're obligated to something else,” says guitarist/vocalist Brandon Pagano. “The balance of maintaining friendships and a relationship while trying to focus on making a record and supporting that record by touring is a pretty constant strain on all of us. The lyrics are a bit of a desperate plea out to those that we're too afraid to lose."
