Directed by Joey Papa and produced by the band’s former guitarist Ben Kasica (for Skies Fall Media Group), the video was premiered exclusively to the bands’ most loyal followers, known as the Panheads, before hitting Loudwire and NewReleaseTuesday.com.

The winners of HM Magazine’s Best Band, Album and Cover Story awards for 2013 also celebrated the announcement of the single “Hero” from Awake (Ardent Records/Provident Distribution) becoming Recording Industry Association of American (RIAA)-certified Platinum (the band’s second Platinum single from the album, along with “Monster”), while “Whispers In The Dark” from Comatose (Ardent Records/Provident Distribution) garnered RIAA Gold certification.
