Avenged Sevenfold have released a music video in an attempt to promote their fourth single called "Seize the Day". The song appears in their compilation album entitled "Live in the LBC and Diamonds in the Rough", which is slated for purchase on September 16 under the courtesy of Warner Bros. Records.
The video depicts the band's front man, Matt Sanders, who is expecting a child from his girlfriend. Matt's friends, who are played by the rest of the band, come to his house to make a big plan to rob a liquor store. In the process, Matt gets caught by the police while the others drive off, leaving him behind.
When his girlfriend visits him in the jail, Matt gets into a fight with her. Upset with Matt, the girl rushes to go home but on her way, she is hit by a van. A funeral scene follows, and her casket is lowered into the ground. At the end of the video, Matt is at her grave, with their son, who had survived the crash. They stand over her grave when the rest of the band come over to him. Matt then picks up his son and they all walk away.
Speaking of the video, Matt says that the band want to do something different and more serious. "We wanted to do a more emotional video this time," the rocker explains. "We have a lot of strippers and stuff like that in our other videos, so we wanted to be much more serious. It's about taking the people you love and holding them close. You make some mistakes in life and that can all be taken away from you in two minutes, so you have to think twice about your actions. It's about seizing the day and keeping those you love close and not messing up."
