Today, BMTH have released their dramatic new video for “In The Dark” that acts as a visual metaphor for the grieving process.

“I guess it’s meant to be a representation of the grieving process,” frontman Oli Sykes tells NME. “It’s a visual metaphor for what the song is talking about. When it comes to the grieving process, we all try to ignore that feeling–but it’s important to grieve. Even if something’s happened for the best, you need to take that moment to feel something. Some people lose a whole world to grief sometimes, while others just don’t grieve. Sometimes we’re just too scared to face our emotions.”

You can watch the video featuring Whitaker below.
