For the video, which was shot at Dean’s Downtown and Bird House Productions Studio, the Bayou City-born four-piece teamed up with Rivet Production and Lynn Birdwell, who directed, produced and assisted in the creative direction of the short film.
At its core, Karnavas says, the song is the story of an inconsolable man attempting to deal with the loss of his wife.
“Losing your life partner is one of the most heartbreaking things that can happen to you,” Karnavas says. “The song idea came from my love for antihero stories, specifically the Robert Rodriguez film Desperado. Like Antonio Banderas’s character in the film, the Bad Bad Man is avenging the death of his wife, who was murdered on their wedding day. But there’s no real glory in vengeance.”
