Today, HM is proud to premiere the new music video, “Of Nothing,” from Forthteller. The Tampa, FL-based band was founded in 2014, previously releasing the Madmen EP in May 2016. The song premiering today comes from the currently-available EP release, Nihilistic.
We spoke with drummer Thom Schultz about the track:
“‘Of Nothing’ represents the struggle to find meaning. In an exceedingly nihilistic society, the search for meaning and purpose has created, for many, an existential crisis that can often drive us to madness. The main character in this video represents the internal struggle of a person trying to find meaning, while the cloaked figure represents an enlightened being attempting to guide a lost individual through the void. On the whole, this song fits with the rest of our Nihilist EP, which is our attempt to create a dialogue about the topic of human existence. Why do we exist? We do we persist?”
This is the band’s third EP, following the aforementioned Madmen and Fragments from July 2015.
