This Friday (August 18th), Fiddlehead will be releasing their third album ‘Death Is Nothing To Us‘ via Run For Cover Records. To give fans one final preview of what to expect, they’ve shared a new track called Fifteen To Infinity’.
It sees the melodic post-hardcore group in a loving mood as vocalist Pat Flynn pays tribute to his wife with the hook “Well if I’m gonna die then I wanna die with you right by my side”. While its video was directed by Fiddlehead guitarist Alex Henery
“Since I knew this was a love song, I asked Pat if there were any specific early memories of him and his now wife. He told me they used to be pretty adventurous, and enjoyed breaking into abandoned buildings and go cliff jumping as teens,” explained Henery when commenting on the inspiration behind ‘Fifteen To Infinity’s video. “There was something there that sparked my interest to make a video about a Bonny and Clyde-style couple but with more petty theft rather than murder and robbing banks. That contrasts with the original idea of the song that states that even the simple moments of a relationship like watching TV together are special and ‘heavenly.’ I wanted the two moments to go hand in hand. That one isn’t more special than the other.”
I filmed this video outside LA, it was insanely hot and the car we used had no working AC. My actors Jack and Kaylinn were amazing and fully got into character, the whole thing just felt so natural. After working with them all day, we got talking on the way home and they also direct and shoot videos. They ended up making the video for our second single ‘Sleepyhead.”
