[New Music] The new American Authors video is another emotional tearjerker
Hot damn, we knew when we saw Blurred Pictures had put out another music video for American Authors, it would be an incredible watch. What we weren't waiting for was another bug getting stuck in our eye while we were cutting onions — we promise that's the reason for the tears right now.
Gun violence in America is shitty, and the production team and band wanted to highlight that.
In a statement about the video, the band says:
In January of 2016 we came up with a concept for a music video that worked perfectly with our song "What We Live For." We wanted to show you a powerful memory between two people whose love for each other, abruptly came to an end due to gun violence. In March 2016, we filmed it.
Everyone has so much to live for, including the 1000s of victims that die from gun violence in our country every year. We must ask ourselves, why do we keep allowing this to happen? How do these violent people get these weapons of mass destruction? And, what can we do to stop them?
We here at American Authors believe in strengthening our gun laws, and we feel that coming together to find a solution to these everyday atrocities is more important than any constitution or amendment, because finding happiness and living our lives as long as we can, is our inherent right as people.
We hope you enjoy our video, and our song, and please keep fighting the good fight to make a positive difference in this world.
