Coal Chamber Unleash Bloody ‘I.O.U. Nothing’ Video
With the release of their comeback album Rivals less than a week away, Coal Chamber have unveiled the video for the track "I.O.U. Nothing." It features two people dressed in white facing each other and lip-syncing the song. By the end of the clip they are both covered in blood.
“'I.O.U. Nothing’ is about being able to sleep well at night, knowing you owe no one anything in life except yourself and your family,” frontman Dez Fafara tells AltPress. “‘It's like we're climbing towards the sun, falling over everything falling over every one, just kick the planets aside, come with me the universe will provide!’ To sum up the first line, it’s is basically saying, in life go at it your hardest, step over obstacles, do your best—and if you do, the universe will give its rewards and do it without owning anyone anything!”
As for the video, Fafara says, “The video is a director concept, featuring two opposing forces both telling each other they owe nothing to one another. But in the aftermath, both have the blood of the other on their hands, because we are all intertwined and seeking to owe nothing in the end.”
Rivals is Coal Chamber's first album since 2002's Dark Days. The album is currently available for pre-order in a variety of formats at this location. Later this month the band heads to Europe to play dates in the U.K., Netherlands, Luxembourg, Germany, Belgium and Austria. For all their tour information, go here.
