Fit For A King face the eye of the storm in new video
Fit For A King are storm chasers in their latest music video for "When Everything Means Nothing."
Telling a story of struggle while taking on the harsh elements, the band look to convey a message of pain and frustration through harsh imagery.
While the final product is striking, frontman Ryan Kirby says the making of the video was all but glamorous.
"This video was the most miserable, but most rewarding experience," he says. "Being sprayed with a fire house while it’s 45 degrees outside isn’t super fun, but we believed this song was worth the effort."
Along with its intense message, Kirby says the band looked to line up the song's message with that of the video.
"It’s about the pain, frustration people feel, watching others live a ‘perfect’ life on social media," he says. "Constantly feeling like you just weren’t destined to have a good life, like you were born in the rain."
