Underoath dropped a new music video for “ihateit,” off their latest album Erase Me. The new music video features a fallen angel, a cryptic prophecy and blood-cutting ritual.
In the song, the band sing about using something or someone up until it’s too much. They hate how they’re so dependent on this person, but it’s “the only thing” that gets them high.
“The ‘ihateit’ video is a glimpse into what it’s like to feel alienated,” Underoath’s Aaron Gillespie says. “To need something you shouldn’t need, to feel trapped and isolated and to feel like you have to keep returning to that place to find solace—it’s a vicious cycle.”
The lyrics and meaning are translated to the music video, with the fallen angel being what they can’t get enough of. The music video starts off with the angel abandoned in trash only to be found by Gillespie.
What happens after has to be seen with your own eyes. Check out the video below.
“ihateit” is off Underoath’s new album, Erase Me, which dropped earlier this year via Fearless Records. You can stream and purchase it now. The band are also going on a headlining tour in November with tickets available here.
