Sleeping With Sirens just posted a behind-the-scenes look from their new music video “Leave It All Behind” and it will give you goosebumps.
If you have a fear of drowning (or are a fan of Saw) then we’re sure the first thing you noticed were the head boxes that fill with water. Well, they’re not all sunshine and rainbows.
“It’s kinda choking you the whole time, so that was already scary,” vocalist Kellin Quinn says of the experience. “And they start filling up the water and they’re like ‘you have one more breath.’”
We’re treated to a a few clips of the other guys in the tanks and Quinn, blonde locks drenched with water dryly states, “I don’t like drowning. It’s not my favorite.”
“Leave It All Behind” is the first real glimpse of what’s to come with the new record How It Feels To Be Lost after a slew of cryptic messages and social absence
“It’s all about depression and anxiety,” Quinn says of the album. “It’s something that I think needs to be talked about, and it’s something that I struggle with and deal with all the time.”
The imagery in the new video certainly show a sense dread, anxiety and depression with scenes of being trapped in a water tank. Check it out for yourself below.
