Florida's VIRGINITY is debuting a music video for "Bad Call" the first single off their upcoming Wiretap Records EP 'Death to the Party,' which will be released on June 5.
Frontman Casey Crawford says, “I wrote Bad Call at a time about a year ago when I had a sore throat for what felt like three months and I was convinced I was gonna die, but I couldn’t go the doctor because of my insurance situation. I was just consumed by fear constantly and I wasn’t sleeping at all. The thing about me though is that I always do this to myself. I always feel like something bad is going to happen to me or my family, so I’m nearly always in an anxious state. I could never have guessed that its release would coincide with this shitty pandemic. I feel like the whole world feels anxious right now and like they themselves might have a bad call coming.
The video itself is a product of the quarantine. We couldn’t get together as a band to shoot something, so me and my wife and kids did this whole shadow puppet concept as a way to keep busy and kill another day of boredom. It’s not exactly a cheerful song, but I hope people can find some catharsis in singing along and headbanging to it. Sometimes it’s okay to revel in the anxiety. Sometimes you have to lean into that feeling in order to find your way out of it. That’s more or less what our whole new EP is about.”
