‘My Nemesis’ was directed renowned director Nick Peterson, who previously directed the videos for ‘Coming Down’ (2012) and ‘Wrong Side Of Heaven’ (2014).
Continuing in the similar vein from their video for ‘Wrong Side of Heaven’, FFDP guitarist Zoltan Bathory comments:
“In life everyone has a nemesis… it can be anything… a self-defeating thinking pattern, a bad habit, an addiction, an adversary… something or someone that puts you in an impossible scenario, where you are presented with a fork in the road. Sometimes there is no other choice but making a hard choice. You can give up and just suffer the situation, or you can use your pain to overcome it, as pain is truly the wind in the sails of change. We wanted to present a story about moving on, a story that probes and questions compassion and loyalty. Those are beautiful notions, but remember you have to be loyal and fair to yourself as well, so will you sacrifice yourself for another or will you live with the guilt that you didn’t.”
In support of the video and the song’s message of overcoming our struggles, 5FDP is encouraging fans to share their own “Nemesis” on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram by completing the phrase – “#MyNemesis is ________ and I will #OVERCOME”. FFDP wants fans to share their stories and read and react to the stories of fellow fans over at fivefingerdeathpunch.com/mynemesis to breed positivity.
