About the video:

"This video is the result of a long standing friendship between the members of the band, director Christian Herrera and Hardline Entertainment founder Ken Seaton. While Thousand Watt Stare has remained mostly inactive since 2011 due to other projects, this video is being released to show what good friends can accomplish when they put their minds to it. The band and everyone involved in the making of this are truly brothers."

-Christian Martucci (vocals/guitar, Thousand Watt Stare)

Thousand Watt Stare was started by Martucci a few years back after he recruited current Unwritten Law drummer Dylan Howard and former Unwritten Law bassist Pat Kim. After releasing a well-reviewed debut EP, they added 2nd guitarist Trevor Howard and returned to the studio in 2011 to begin work on their debut full-length album, Silver Dimes. "I've been in a few bands over the years that were expected to sound a certain way and it just never made me happy," says Martucci, who has also played with Slipknot's Corey Taylor and Dee Dee Ramone, among other acts. "It's all about feel... That's the thing that makes this band special to us. There are no rules."
