Sinner Sinners are gearing up to release their new album Optimism Disorder next week and we're happy to bring you the latest, twisted visual to get you hyped for the new record.
Premiering exclusively on Fuse, the Jeremy Thomas–directed video for "Desperation Saved Me..." brings the band's signature, throwback-inspired blend of early-'80s hardcore and '70s goth punk to a visual whose story you have to watch to the end to grasp the full meaning. Watch above as one woman becomes seemingly terrorized by being the only one who can hear Sinner Sinners banging through their all-so-real lyrics ("I'd rather think of nothing / Than not think at all") while all the her dinner party guests go about eating and drinking.
Sinner Sinners co-founder Steve Thill gave more insight about the song itself. "'Desperation Saved Me...' started out as a tribute to French composer Serge Gainsbourg," he shares with Fuse. "Since we took a very classic approach to this record, we wanted to have the mandatory ballad. The vocals are more spoken like many of Gainbourg's songs and the lyrics are about the many times being desperate was actually a good thing and kept us out of the gutter."
The new track previews Optimism Disorder album, which is available for pre-order now and drops in full on March 7. Look out for a collaboration with Jesse Hughes from Eagles of Death Metal on the LP titled "Celexa Blues" and check out the band on tour in Europe through March 8.
