Five Finger Death Punch have debuted the music video for “A Little Bit Off” on Monday (June 8). The track is from their latest album, F8. This marks the second music video released with a song from their new album. “A Little Bit Off” is currently topping the Active Rock Radio charts, sitting in the Top 5.
The video was shot during lockdown in a deserted car-free Las Vegas where Ivan Moody is the only soul on a sidewalk usually crowded with people.
“Our new record F8 came out right at the exact moment COVID-19 smashed into western society and (naturally) all attention was diverted to the pandemic. It placed us in a difficult situation, where on one hand this is probably the best album we have ever made, on the other it felt insensitive to promote a record on full tilt boogie while people were dying all across the world, businesses closed down, and the economy went face down in a ditch. Since it affects all public events, and tours are cancelled for who knows how long, artists also became victims of the fallout.” Zoltan Bathory explained. “So we decided to make this video a snapshot of the unprecedented times and underline it with some humor to at least lighten the overall gloomy vibes. However, here we are today ready to release it … but thinking once again … is it insensitive to debut the video now that the world is on fire…I guess this will turn out to be the anthem for 2020… We are all “a little bit off today.”
The band’s current release, F8, debuted at No. 1 on on Rock charts worldwide with a Top 10 Mainstream chart debut in the US, Austria, Australia, Canada, Finland, Germany, Sweden, Switzerland, UK and more. The band has amassed over 7 billion streams to date, over 3 billion video views and is the biggest artist in the hard rock space measured by total consumption (digital sales added to digital streams converted to sales) having recently surpassed Metallica and AC/DC.
The band intends to head out on the road this fall, barring official restrictions imposed due to COVID-19. All dates can be found here.
