Failure Anthem Tackle Homelessness, Trafficking in ‘First World Problems’ Video

Subscribe to Rock 108 on

Up-and-coming rockers Failure Anthem have just unleashed a powerful new video for their latest single, “First World Problems.” The informative and impactful clip can be seen in the player above.

The clip, shot by director Patrick Flaherty, finds the band performing the title track from their First World Problems album in a dimly lit Los Angeles warehouse, and while the performance of the song is likely to catch your eyes and ears, it’s the more conceptual part of the clip that should make a social impact for those viewing the clip.

The video centers on a little girl, innocent in nature, flipping the channels and being exposed to some horrific news on such topics as homelessness and human trafficking. The video backs up the message with statistical information on the amount of homeless people, the number of those homeless who are children, stats on sex trade workers and child soldiers for military regimes and more. It’s a powerful song backed by some equally powerful visuals. Watch Failure Anthem’s “First World Problems” video above.

As for the upstart North Carolina rockers, you can see them playing “First World Problems,” “Paralyzed” and other new favorites on tour this summer. The band is spending a good portion of their summer on tour supporting Buckcherry and Nonpoint. Dates can be found here.
