Gym Class Heroes have released a new music video and it is for their track "Life Goes On". The track is a cut from the band's album "The Papercut Chronicles II" which dropped in November last year.
"The Matt Chronicles" was added as a subtitle to the clip because it prominently features the band's drummer Matt McGinley. Most of the clip shows people moving in reverse while McGinley moves forward. It starts off in a tour bus and it doesn't take much long before the drummer gets up and begins his journey.
He walks through snow-covered streets, hopping over broken fences and moving from one sidewalk to another. He soon finds a pin in a snow pile with the words "Captain Awesome" written on it. He finally arrives backstage at a show and heads straight for his dressing room.
He puts the pin on and walks out to the stage to meet his bandmates and assume his proper position behind his drums and cymbals as a roaring crowd welcomes them. The video ends with a high energy performance by the rap-rock group.
A short post about the video on the band's website says, "Sometimes you're the only one moving forward in an entire world tha's pushing back," pretty much describing the entire theme of the visuals.
Gym Class Heroes' lead singer Travie McCoy worked with Danish singer-songwriter Oh Land for this track. She lent her dreamy vocals to the song's chorus.
