HM has partnered with metalcore act Via the Verge to bring you the band’s debut music video for “EDM.” The video was directed by Sam Link from Collapse Entertainment whose previous work can be seen in Memphis May Fire, Crown the Empire and Sleeping with Sirens videos.

Vocalist Joey Kelm wrote in to HM to talk about making the video, a deal the band got from headlining the locals on the Battle of the Bands stage at Warped Tour in 2015.

“For our first music video, we decided to set the bar high. Our production experience was smooth and natural. It’s safe to say that Sam was the missing Link we needed to move forward on our musical journey.”

The track comes from Via the Verge’s debut EP, available now on all platforms. Get it now through Bandcamp.

HM contributing writer Andrew Voigt dives in with McCracken about The Used's new album, Heartwork, his absence on social media, and why 2020 will be the year of rice.
