Message from lead singer/songwriter Finnegan Bell: “Let It All Burn” is how I see the world through my 18-year-old eyes. The hypocrisy and unwanted advice that weighed me down during senior year led to this song. My Dad being diagnosed with stage 3 cancer made me more determined- “fuck what they say, I make my own way”. The song was produced by Danny Saber (Rolling Stones, U2, Marilyn Manson, David Bowie).
The music video was directed by Dean Karr. The promise of his early work led to Karr being asked to direct Marilyn Manson’s “Sweet Dreams.” The resulting piece drew immediate and broad commercial attention, and served to propel both Manson and Karr into the forefront of the visual rock world. He was immediately in demand to work with other top artists. His ground-breaking music videos have been seen by millions – at first on MTV and then viral on the web.
Among the artists he has worked with are: Evanescence, Lisa Marie Presley, The Dave Matthews Band, X-Japan, Stevie Nicks, Willie Nelson, Velvet Revolver, Damian Marley, Ozzy Osbourne, Cypress Hill,Tommy Lee, Everlast, Dr. Dre, Queens of the Stone Age, Godsmack, and Iron Maiden. They have received major MTV, Billboard, and MVPA Awards. Karr won “Video of the Year” and “Best Rock Video” at the recent MUCH Music Awards. http://www.deankarr.com/music-videos
The video was filmed in a working iron foundry in South Gate, CA. The temperatures of the molten iron exceeded 2500 degrees.
Love Ghost is an L.A based rock band. An industry insider recently noted “their effortless melding of styles invokes the magic that was once common place in rock music. From Progressive to Industrial to the Classics with a taste of modern Hip-Hop, Love Ghost manages to walk the tight rope of mixing styles without it ever feeling contrived. The biting satirical lyrics give the listener a clear picture of what it’s like to be young in 2019. Love Ghost could be the first post millennial band that matters and more importantly make guitars matter again!” The band consists of Finnegan Bell (guitar and lead vocals), Ryan Stevens (bass and background vocals), Samson Young (drums and background vocals), Nicky Renard (lead guitar) and Cory Batchler (keyboards).
