Following their 2020 label debut, Nothing is Broken for Good, Nashville’s underground heroes Idle Threat have released an emotional music video for their song “Cement.” With heavy themes of loss and despair woven into a poignant visual story, the song sheds light on the experience of death from the perspectives of both the grieved and the grieving, paired with a deep-rooted hope that even death is but a moment.
For their debut music video, the band chose a setting that was close to home. We spoke with vocalist Zeke McKinney to learn more:
“We filmed all the live band shots at a building in downtown Smyrna, TN where we host Threat Fest every year. Those windows are also on the cover of our first EP, Grown Tired. The organization that owns the building, Carpe Artista, has been a huge help to us throughout the years — it’s an organization that we support and love very much. A lot has happened for Idle Threat in that building.”
The music video for “Cement” premiered today via Tooth and Nail Records.
