BUCKCHERRY have partnered with Ultimate-Guitar.com to premiere the official music video for their new single “Nothing Left But Tears” and give away an Epiphone guitar autographed by the band. Debuting today, “Nothing Left But Tears” is the first video of BUCKCHERRY’s career to not feature the band in a performance setting – instead, each of the members personifies one of the seven deadly sins… the same deadly sins that inspired the band’s new album ‘Confessions.’
“It’s evil, powerful, creepy and fun – it’s an incredible piece of art,” says BUCKCHERRY frontman Josh Todd of the video, with director Daniel Gomez adding, “we’re taking a step into the dark and seeing what happens afterwords…” Watch the video here:
Every fan that watches “Nothing Left But Tears” at the Ultimate-Guitar.com page hosting the video between now and September 13 can enter to win an Epiphone guitar autographed by BUCKCHERRY.
Says Gomez of the ambitious video project: “It opens in a roadside motel where there was a murder-suicide, and the video is the aftermath. Our character comes back from the dead and walks into a tunnel that is the pathway to hell and ends up in an ‘Alice In Wonderland’ meets ‘Dante’s Inferno’ tea party where six of the seven deadly sins are having a party in the middle of the forest – our interpretation of hell.”
Adds BUCKCHERRY guitarist Keith Nelson: “There are so many cool characters in the video, and it’s the first video where we didn’t played instruments, it was a lot of fun to do something different.”
