The video includes an appearance by cage fighter Nick "The Headhunter" Chapman. You can check out the clip by heading over to Kerrang! at this location.

Lead guitarist Chris Greene commented on the band's sound: "It’s the new old school. All of our influences are classic metal and hard rock bands, but we channel them into our own sound. Each song tells a story and has a beginning, middle, and end. That keeps things interesting."

"It’s basically about a weekend where we live," Green went on to say. "You go out, have a few drinks, and get in a scuffle but it’s a good time. We’re the odd ones out in South Wales. We’ve got long hair, love heavy rock music and don’t play rugby. We’re always fighting back."
