Im here to tell you a little bit about our new video for “Familiar Taste of Poison“. First and foremost, this was the most intense, and enjoyable video Ive ever made! Directed and written by Mr. Jeremy Alter ( a film director ), this video is moving and full of depth, one that you’ll watch over and over, just to relive all of the details. Jeremy and his team worked tirelessly on every inch of this video to make sure everything was right.
A little about the video:
This is a movie, set in 1940?s Hollywood, shot in film noir style and grace.
Myself, a young starlet, the center of a murder mystery. Joe cast as “Hard boiled Joe”, the head detective in the case. Josh cast as ” Playboy Dr Smith ” the suspiciously smarmy boyfriend”, and Arejay as, ” the coroner, owner of ‘Arejays Cadaver Palace’, and head of forensics, who is helping Joe with the case. This is a “who done it and how”. You will see Halestorm as you’ve never seen us before. This is a film full of surprises ( and a special guest appearance if you can guess). Hope you enjoy!!
What FTOP means to me:
This song to me has always been a realistic way of looking at love.
The fantasies and happy endings are just that, fantasies. ” the roses were only to drain my inspiration, the promises were spoiled before they left your lips” There are no rules to live by or follow. Love is torture, a creeping, and slow takeover. Attacking your senses, and awareness. To love someone and take someone in for all they are, and equally (more importantly) for all they are Not, is the most beautiful and poisonous thing. You continue on, with only your flighty mind and slowed heart beat to follow. Battling the opinions of others, questioning yourself and all society says that you’re “supposed to do”. Nothing worth fighting for is ever easy. At this point of no return, you decide that this familiar taste of poison is the only thing that will guide you, the only thing that is in fact real. “I could fight this til the end, but maybe I don’t want to win.”
I know that “the sweet escape is always laced with a familiar taste of poison.”
