In this new music video, the Brent Smith-fronted band serve as a house band for a party held in a huge mansion.
"The Crow & The Butterfly" music video from Shinedown has made its way out for viewing pleasure. It features women putting on heavy make-up and dancing around with their partner in a huge ballroom while the band provide the song for them.
The music video was filmed in June in the middle of the band's tight schedule on the road for The Carnival of Madness tour. "I have to admit we have been so busy with the current tour we are on, and putting everything together for 'The Carnival of Madness,' we haven't even gotten a chance to ask all of you what you think about the song, and also what kind of video you would like to see from us," frontman Brent Smith told fans back then.
Taken from Shinedown's 2008 studio album "The Sound of Madness", "The Crow & The Butterfly" becomes their first single to rule Billboard Rock Songs chart. "For me lyrically this was one of the most intense stories I have ever written. But I know the song means something different to everyone," Smith said.
