My Darkest Days, 'Every Lie' - New Video

Do you like My Darkest Days? The Canadian band is one of my favorite modern acts. I really like their self-titled album. The band made a splash with their video for "Porn Star Dancing" and now they've got a new one for "Every Lie." The video actually has a plot and everything - just like the good videos back in the day.

One of the VERY few modern radio rock bands I like. Calling the, generic and cookie cutter is pretty short-sighted. Save that talk for bands like Seether, Three Days Grace, and Nickelback.

I agree with Kenny.This is one of the only new radio pushed bands I actually like.(Halestorm is the other)

Nowhere near as good as "Porn Star Dancing". The video is just so-so but does have some comedic touches, tho a few of them probably unintentional, which makes them even funnier.

The chick smacking the lead singer over the head with a plate is quite humorous.

The guitarist's ridiculously out of place mohawk looked even goofier smacked down by the rain machines.

I thought it would have been even better if the singer had started honking his horn when the dude showed up at her front door.

One thing the vid got right is having the lead singer star in the story. So many vids back in the day would have all actors in the story parts which was always a big disconnect for me.

It's also pretty clever the way they're performing in front of the motel. But choosing to jump around like Pete Townsend looks pretty foolish when the music simply duz not rock on the level that would warrant such stagecraft.

A little slick, just like "Porn Star Dancing". The singer's voice sounds autotuned, just a touch, and I'd be surprised if these guys brought it live. Color me unconvinced. Definitely not sure why these guys get the radio push ahead of any number of other bands of the same ilk.

I'm going with Mike on this one it sounds very generic. I hear nothing "rock" to it. It's very "pop" to me I don't hear auto tune but I do hear a very generic harmonizer program. The song pretty much doesn't have any dynamics it's just there. It's not good or bad it just exists. The opening acoustic riff is very Shinedown and the rest of it sounds like Lifehouse. The entire song is built off the arpeggio in the beginning and 4 measures of tribal thumping drums does not make a song rock.
To me the bottom line is Porn Star Dancing was a cool rock tune and this is apparently the labels attempt to try and do the rock song / ballad formula. The only thing is this mid tempo pop tune isn't a ballad and it's not complicated or emotional. It's just there.... hell it's not even memorable. I can't tell you much about the lyrics except the songs called every lie and the arpeggio gets boring after hearing it for 2 minutes straight. To me it's a half written song.....like most stuff today.
