blessthefall has teamed up with Loudwire to premiere the new music video for their song “You Wear A Crown But You’re No King.”

 

“This video was definitely the most dangerous thing we’ve ever done as a band,” explains lead singer Beau Bokan. “We had 3 cannons literally shooting flames 30 ft into the air and about 50 burning logs all around us. The entire fire department was there watching the whole thing with hoses ready, not to mention they had a medi-vac helicopter on call in case anyone was severely injured. I did actually light my arm on fire, it was the coolest (and the hottest) moment of my life. We were about 45 minutes from Houston in the middle of absolutely nowhere and filmed until 5am. We party.”

The track is featured on the band’s critically-acclaimed new album Hollow Bodies, which is available at local Best Buy stores for a special price of $7.99 until Saturday, August 24th. 

With each purchase of the new album, the band is giving their fans a chance to win blessthefall concert tickets for life. Fans must post a picture or screenshot of their purchased album, tagging #BTF4LIFE and #HollowBodies and they will be automatically entered in for a chance at a lifetime worth of tickets. Contest ends next Tuesday, August 27th.  

 

The band is gearing up for their U.S. canvassing winter tour with friends August Burns Red this Nov/Dec. The tour features additional support from Defeater and Beartooth and is set to kick off on November 1st in Philadelphia, PA. See full routing below. 

 

 

ABOUT BLESSTHEFALL – 

Beau Bokan (lead vocals), Eric Lambert (guitar), Jared Warth (bass/vocals), Matt Traynor (drums), Elliott Gruenberg (guitar) – A leading force in the metalcore genre, Arizona quintet blessthefall have spent years taking their message globally; each body of work more impressive than the last. Their last album Awakening (2011) achieved their best sales to date hitting #32 on the Billboard Top 200. Noted as Alternative Press’ Most Anticipated album of 2013, the band commissioned producer Joey Sturgis (Asking Alexandria, The Devil Wears Prada, Of Mice & Men) to record new album Hollow Bodies. Never before recruiting outsiders, the band enlisted the help of friends to feature 3 guest vocal spots on Hollow Bodies, including Jake Luhrs of August Burns Red, Jesse Barnett of Stick To Your Guns, and electro-rock sensation Lights. The band just wrapped up a massive summer on the entire Vans Warped Tour, which adds to an already impressive tour resume that includes runs with As I Lay Dying, Avenged Sevenfold, Bullet For My Valentine, and August Burns Red.
