Santa Clarita, CA based Smile Empty Soul have debuted their video for the song “Don’t Ever Leave” premiering online at www.noisecreep.com. The video, which features actor MTV Movie Award winner Sean Faris (Never Back Down) along with actress Merisa Torneo, is partially based on the story of a Smile Empty Soul fan that rode the rails and used the band's lyrics for inspiration, as written about in the LA Times.
“This video is really kind of special to me because the concept is based around the real life story of one of our fans,” says Smile Empty Soul frontman Sean Danielsen. “We’ve always been a band that strives to have a connection to the people that listen to our music and to have a chance to tell a fan’s story is amazing.”
Smile Empty Soul’s Sean Danielsen is currently at home recovering after breaking his leg and tearing his ACL in a skateboarding accident prior to a show in Kansas City where the band was opening for Buckcherry. Danielson is recovering quickly and was recently cleared by doctors to start rehearsing with the band again. Danielson has issued the following statement:
“I wanted to thank all the fans that have sent us messages and kept in touch with me after my accident. It really means the world to have you guys love the new record and can’t wait for us to get back on the road,” he commented. “I had a meeting with Doctors this week and they said that my leg is healing properly. They gave the go ahead to rehearse with the guys, although I can’t stand because of my leg brace, I can still play guitar. We’re working on a few ideas that will have us back on the road before you know it.”
Smile Empty Soul just released their new album 'Consciousness' through FOF Label Group. The album was recorded in Los Angeles, CA by producer by Eddie Wohl (Anthrax, Ill Nino) and mixed by Jay Baumgardner (Three Days Grace, Godsmack, Papa Roach).
