Whitechapel's new album Mark Of The Blade was the first to heavily feature clean vocals, and frontman Phil Bozeman nailed it. Now the band has chosen us to premiere the video for "Bring Me Home," which is one of the songs that exclusively employed clean vocals. The song is a powerful tribute to the loss of Bozeman's father, and the video explores his feelings of loss, grief, suicidal thoughts, and ultimately overcoming one of the toughest times in his life.
Honestly, it's a tough video to get through. Whether you've lost a parent, a cousin, a brother, sister, or friend, it's always too soon and it never doesn't hit you just as hard as if it happened yesterday. Especially when that person has been a fixture in your life.
“This video means more to me than any video we've ever done. It portrays my struggle through dealing with my dad's death at the age of 10. The shots of me show me at my darkest moments. Suicidal thoughts, suicide note and feeling alone. The atmosphere of the room we shot this is nailed exactly how I was feeling at the time. Dark, depressed and suicidal. The shots of the man and young boy portray my bond I had with my dad and how devastated I was when he left. They are presented to be in a dream like state of me remembering him. The last shot is from my dad and mom's actual gravesite. It's really awesome to have that authenticity to the video. The final scene is showing that I came out of it alive but no matter what, I will push forward and not give up.”
