The gasoline soaked cinematic video was filmed in the high deserts of Nevada, directed by the band’s guitarist Zoltan Bathory in conjunction with Thought Pirates Film’s Brian Neal, while Steve Darnell of the famous Welder Up Garage built the cars and handled the set design.
Zoltan explains, “This video was an experiment, the initial step toward something we always wanted to do, which is to make a full-length Death Punch movie somewhere down the line. We jumped into this knowing that we’d shoot more footage than we could possibly fit in one music video. We went out there with two helicopters, two gyrocopters, twenty something crazy cars, a big cast and an arsenal of cameras. We ended up with so much amazing material, the hardest task was to compress it down into a 3 minutes video, so we made an extended version with a long intro and we are making an even longer ‘directors cut’ as we speak.”
