Fall Out Boy released the official music video for “Centuries” – the first single off their upcoming sixth studio album.
‘“I knew a man once who said, “Death smiles at us all. All a man can do is smile back.”’ – the gladiator.
Getting back up. Dusting it off. My dad used to tell me the most important part of any of it was getting back up on the horse – I didn’t grow up on a farm – but it still applied. David vs. Goliath, us vs. them, you vs. the world… brains, talent and luck are great but heart will always trump them. That is the sentiment of this video,” said Pete Wentz of Fall Out Boy. “Thank you for bearing with us while we finished it… the greatest story ever to me will always be the unexpected… when the loser wins, when the clouds clear the day might just turn out alright…”
Since its release, “Centuries” has been climbing charts all over the world and debuted at #1 on the iTunes Alternative Chart. The video features the band members as Gladiators battling it out one by one against a giant of a beast. Of course they are no match for him on their own and take a serious beating before they remember that they were each given something by a stranger before the fight.
Do they survive? You’ll have to watch to find out.
