The video was premiered exclusively on Billboard and directed by Daniel Henry.
The song is included on their sophomore album "No Place Is Home", whuch was released on May 25th.
Frontman Sam Getz told Billboard about the video;
"They're finding their safe place, their sanctuary in each other. There's an uncertainty in this ominous light, or whatever it is, about what you're unsure of or running from, feeling unsafe. Then you get to the end with this young dude who's flicking off the drone, saying, 'Screw you! I'm not scared of you anymore!' That caught me by surprise, but it's nice to be surprised by something -- and it's always interesting to see how someone takes the songs and interprets them for themselves, like (Henry) did."
He said of the song;
"That was one of the first songs from the album that we started playing live, and it's one of my favorites to play. It slows us down a little bit, which is good. I've been putting it in the middle of the set, and it's kind of nice to have that moment where you sort of stop and reset. It leads to a little bit of a moment with the audience where I feel togetherness with that chorus. I've really felt people embracing it."
Welshly Arms was formed in 2013, consisting of Sam Getz (guitar/vocals), Brett Lindemann (keys), Jimmy Weaver (bass), Mikey Gould (drums) and Bri and Jon Bryant (bgv’s).
Since then, the band has released three EPs "Welcome"2013, "Covers" and "Legendary". The self-titled debut album was released in 2015.
Their music has been featured in trailers for two films "The D Train" starring Jack Black and "The Hateful Eight" directed by Quentin Tarantino.
The song "Legendary" was chosen as the official theme song for WWE's 2017 TLC.
