FRANK IERO AND THE FUTURE VIOLENTS Unveil Video for ‘Great Party’
You’re all invited to a ‘great party’ in FIATFV latest clip.
Fresh off a European festival run, Frank Iero and The Future Violents have unveiled brilliant visuals for their track Great Party. Lifted off their new album, Barriers, released in May, the song is a raw, honest slice of Frank’s signature gritty songwriting.
“Just when you thought it can’t get worse, always it does”, Frank sings and we can’t argue with that statement. From a fruit punch bowl turned ash tray, to the questionable looking menu, and quite a diversified guest list, this may not be your usual party setting. Starring Surfbort (Cult Records signees and the faces of Gucci’s pre-fall 2019 campaign), the narrative takes quite an interesting turn as we watch the confetti explosion bring a grand finale to the bizarre event.
Frank further explains the concept of the video:
Sometimes when you write songs for an album you have a hard time placing where they should go in the tracklisting, or what would be a good visual representation for them. Other times it’s like the universe opens up its playbook and tells you exactly how every piece fits into this giant puzzle. I knew immediately when we finished writing ‘Great Party’ that it needed to be a single off the record and that we needed to make a video for that song. when I wrote the treatment for it I could see the whole thing playing out in my head, and I knew that our friends needed to be cast in it! I saw this weird gathering that you couldn’t tell if it was an AA meeting or the world’s bleakest birthday, and I knew our friend Dani from Surfbort had to be the one to light the fuse that would turn everything on its head. I really love this video, it may have turned out even better than I first imagined it.
