First music video from Pete Wentz's side project Black Cards has just made its way out, supporting their single "Club Called Heaven". It was shot in black and white footage as a "homage to a classic film" and features the Fall Out Boy bassist engaged in a car chase with cops.
A couple who happens to drive their car on the same road lost control of their vehicle and accidentally run off of the side of the road when Wentz passes by them. The man manages to save his woman's head before their car explodes. He then rushes home to his laboratory, doing some kind of Frankenstein project to bring her to life again.
The music Pete Wentz created in Black Cards was inspired by Jamaican sounds which he heard while vacationing with his family. He said, "I spent a lot of time hanging around the beaches and I started to get inspired again by songs like 'Two Sevens Clash' and 'Warriors'. I'd never heard any of these songs but could imagine them having an everlasting imprint, like people would dance to this stuff forever."
On why he chose a female vocalist in this group, Wentz shared earlier this year, "I couldn't imagine trying to replace Patrick [Stump]. Combine all this with my nonsense and ideas. Stuff I could never write or never had a perspective to write from in FOB." In other words, he just wanted "to try something different."
