Video premiere: Of Mice & Men's 'Feels Like Forever'

Of Mice & Men's video for Feels Like Forever, premiering at USA TODAY, really does feel like the song coming to life on the screen.

Between the time-lapse night-sky photography and the water-soaked settings, director Nathan William conveys the struggle going on in the Southern California metal band's new single.

"The song is about an internal battle and feeling like everything is crashing down on you, it's raining down on you, drowning you," says singer Austin Carlile, who calls Feels Like Forever his favorite song on the band's latest album, Restoring Force. "It's a song that we want to empower people to know that everybody goes through storms, everybody goes through trials and tribulations. It's the focus of how to get out of it, how to better yourself from it, how to learn from it so it doesn't happen again. Then, if it does happen again, you know exactly how to handle it."

The band shot the video near its home, with the indoor set-up taking place in a studio where giant fans blew water on the band and Carlile shooting his beach scenes in Malibu, Calif.

"It's a spot we usually go to hang out or surf," he says. "That was really important to us. We're proud to be from Southern California, and we've never really had the opportunity to show that in any of our material. So it's not just a beach shot, it's our beach."
