Shatterproof release new video for their track Karma, off upcoming self titled EP

June 23, 2017

    Perfect way to kick off the weekend, we have the new music video from Shatterproof. The video is for their bad ass track, Karma. It is the  next single off their upcoming self titled EP which is set for a July 21st release.  The music video for “Karma” directed and produced by Hudson Bloom, is “the classic Mariah Carey, revenge-breakup song,” continuing the band says, “It’s about being cheated on and taking things into your own hands. This story is developed further in the actual music video for the song. A girl breaks up with Benji in the first scene. Instead of being down about it, he channels this energy into his music. The girl slowly makes her way from one band member to the next, breaking all of our hearts and eventually becoming a sort of fake mythology for how the band started. Each member joins this band and bonds over being cheated-on by the girl.”     Shatterproof has been on our highlight bands these days, as they blew us away [Read More]
