Underoath Unveil Video For ‘Sunburnt’
Underoath are currently finishing up the tail end of their farewell tour with plans to retire the band after a 15 year run. Leading up to their final tour, the band released a new song titled ‘Sunburnt,’ and now they are following up with a video for the tune.
‘Sunburnt’ is one of only two new songs the band included on their ‘Anthology 1999-2012’ greatest hits collection, released in November of 2012.
The mind-bending video for ‘Sunburnt’ allows for a lot of personal interpretation throughout its provocative imagery. With visions that mix the internal struggles of one individual against a backdrop of stunning architecture, the mood of the official clip is largely fueled by the lyrics of the song, “I stand before the crowd broken / I was once of this / I will never let them in, no / Won’t let them intensify / And I never took my time while I was there / I never took the time.”
The video, that may very well go down as the last clip ever released by the band, was directed by drummer Daniel Davison. Davison, who has his own film and video company, has shot videos for other bands as well including Manchester Orchestra and Oh Sleeper. He also used his skills to create live video projections for his former band Norma Jean.
