Sometimes music can really tug at the heartstrings. This is especially true when Valentine’s Day is around the corner, and pop-punk fivesome Grayscale may have this year’s biggest heartstring-tugger with their video for “Forever Yours,” which premieres on Billboard today (Feb. 12).
The five-minute clip starts out with some cryptic, haunting shots of a pretty girl, a shattering car windshield and emergency room nurses before Grayscale’s frontman Collin Walsh takes the mic with an acoustic guitar to tell the tale of a love that ended tragically. As the video shows Walsh and the girl happily spending time with each other, things take a dismal turn when the girl gets into a fatal car accident — a visual representation of the track’s equally heartbreaking lyrics.
?“’Forever Yours’ is a song about regret,” Walsh tells Billboard. “It’s a song about a relationship falling apart without having a chance to gain closure due to unfortunate circumstances.”
The song is from Grayscale’s debut album Adornment, which the Philadelphia natives released last May on Fearless Records. It’s the most acoustic track on the album, but certainly not the most angsty — they are a pop-punk band, after all. Check out the full album here and watch the “Forever Yours” video below.
