Nothing More tackle some important topics on their new music video for “Let ‘Em Burn.”
The video portrays several mass shootings from past years to ask, “Why are we killing each other?” Watch it in full below.
Nothing More have unleashed the music video for “Let ‘Em Burn,” off the band’s latest album The Stories We Tell Ourselves.
The video focuses on the tragedy of mass shootings and questions the divisiveness of today’s politics.
“Hundreds of people have been killed in mass shootings over the past several years,” the band share in a statement. “Almost everyone has chosen the red team or the blue team and we’re stuck in this mode where we fight over political problems instead of human solutions.”
“More guns or less guns isn’t the question,” they continue. “The real question is, why are we killing each other?”
Plus, Nothing More are partnering with To Write Love on Her Arms to focus on mental health. They will donate $1 from every ticket purchased to the organization.
“The ‘villain and victim’ narrative in media is so seared into our brains that we can’t see straight,” explains vocalist Jonny Hawkins. “We are blind to human solutions because our emotions have been glued to political problems, and it has paralyzed our progress.”
“Most of us know that mental health is the cause of mass shootings, yet we are obsessed with talking about the symptoms and gridlocking ourselves in political battles without proper action. It’s time to find solutions…” Hawkings continues. “It’s time to focus on mental health.”
