Five Finger Death Punch have shared their new music video for “A Little Bit Off.”
The clip was shot in Las Vegas during quarantine and shows frontman Ivan Moody walking around in deserted areas that are usually crowded with people.
“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,” says guitarist Zoltan Bathory. “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. Since it affects all public events, and tours are cancelled for who knows how long, artists also became victims of the fallout.
“So we 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. 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.'”

“A Little Bit” comes from Five Finger Death Punch’s latest album, F8. The band’s spring tour Papa Roach, I Prevail, and Ice Nine Kills has been postponed and rescheduled for the fall. The tour will kick off on September 28th in Sunrise, Florida barring official restrictions imposed due to COVID-19.
