In the clip, frontman Brendon Urie walks up side of skyscraper. In a press release, the band said of the video, “No matter how hard your dreams seem, keep going. You might even have to climb up the side of a building in downtown LA, but it’ll all be worth it at the top. Stay up on that rise.”
The band performed the song at the MTV Video Music Awards on August 20th.
Brendon Urie said of the song;
"I want[ed] to talk about my childhood and having this dream as a kid. Making a cardboard cutout of a guitar and standing front of the mirror, dreaming of being on stage. Now it’s come to fruition, and that is what [“High Hopes”] is about. It’s [this] all encompassing idea of how it started and where I am now [and] the vision I had."
