“Bastardized” grindcore band Fuck the Facts have teamed up with director David Hall again to make a video for their song “Dropping Like Flies” off of their latest album Pleine Noirceur. You can check out the video below:
On the new video, lead guitarist Topas says the following:
“His unique approach to making videos has always been inspiring to us, and we’ve always given him carte blanche (just watch our video for ‘Everywhere Yet Nowhere’). For the ‘Dropping Like Flies’ video Dave manages to give the viewer an uncomfortable and satirical look at the devastating opioid epidemic, highlighting just how much this issue is not taken seriously enough.”
Director David Hall adds:
“The main inspiration for the video for ‘Dropping Like Flies’ came directly from Mel’s lyrics. She eloquently sings about addiction as an epidemic and society’s response: ‘help isn’t on the way.’ I wanted to present a vision of hopelessness, the brutal ravaging of addiction, the pervasiveness of prescription meds, the economic forces that conspire, and show some faces not commonly presented as addicts: white people, senior citizens, the middle and upper class. Addiction transcends all demographics. God sends flies to wounds he should heal. Pills rain down from heaven.”
