Five Finger Death Punch didn’t let a little quarantine get in the way of their plans to release a new music video for their track, “A Little Bit Off,” which is climbing up the rock radio charts.

The band just released the official music video, which was filmed on lockdown and shows a deserted Las Vegas. Watch the full music video below.

“Our new record F8 came out right at the exact moment Covid 19 smashed into western society and (naturally) all attention was diverted to the pandemic,” Zoltan Bathory said in a statement.

“It placed us in a difficult situation, where on one hand this is probably the best album we have ever made, on the other it felt insensitive to promote a record on full tilt boogie while people were dying all across the world, businesses closed down, and the economy went face down in a ditch,” he continued. “Since it affects all public events, and tours are canceled for who knows how long, artists also became victims of the fallout.”

So, the band “decided to make this video a snapshot of the unprecedented times and underline it with some humor to at least lighten the overall gloomy vibes,” he added. “However, here we are today ready to release it … but thinking once again … is it insensitive to debut the video now that the world is on fire… I guess this will turn out to be the anthem for 2020… We are all ‘a little bit off today.’”
