Set It Off Lead a Punky Gospel Church in "Why Worry" Video

Set It Off want to take you to church. Not only is the Florida-based band's gospel-tinged single "Why Worry?" a feel-good punk anthem in the vein of Paramore's "Ain't It Fun," it's now got a praiseworthy new video sure to lift your spirits. Check out the new video revealed for the first single off their just-released new album Duality, premiering exclusively on Fuse.

Watch above as singer Cody Carson leads a service we definitely wouldn't mind popping into every Sunday filled with tatted, pierced and all-around fierce-looking churchgoers. There's a bit off an angel-versus-devil theme as we see the band clad in pure-white outfits and in all-black ensembles. At one point, a rebellious version of Cody comes to cause trouble in the service. The vocalist himself gave us a little more insight into how the concept was created.

"We actually started creating the concept for the 'Why Worry' video while we were still in the studio," Cody tells Fuse. "This song very much embodies duality in the actual characteristics of the music itself, and knowing that this was going to be the first single and that the album is called Duality, we wanted to really drive that point home. So that explains the 'good Cody' and 'bad Cody,' the light side of the crowd and the dark side of the crowd, as well as the contrasting moods in the verses and choruses."

Cody adds that fans should take note of the hand choreography in the vid, as you'll need to know it at the band's next gig.

"Pay attention to the hand motions in the chorus," he says. "On the words, 'Why, why worry at all'—we made our own 'N Sync-esque choreographed move—and also the hand symbol we create at the beginning and end of the video. I present to you the Duality diamond hand symbol: When I throw it up it shows, I want to see you do it right back!"

Look out for the band on the road this fall, supporting Black Veil Brides' Black Mass tour that kicks off on October 21, with your Duality hand symbol ready to go.
