In Their Words: “I’m really happy with how the video for ‘BloodFire’ turned out. We tried a couple of different things but the big bonfire in tandem with the moonlight that evening just really brought the video together. We wanted the video to match the intensity of the song and I think we accomplished that goal. ‘BloodFire’ was really an exercise in writing to the music. I had a riff that I really liked and I heard it in my head as a driving rock and roll song. However I didn’t want to sacrifice storytelling in order to make the song work. I wanted to still tell a story but I wanted it to match the intensity of the music. So I ended up writing about this intense person who has maybe been hurt in the past and just isn’t going to take crap anymore. It was a fun song to write and a really fun one to play live.” — Jake Ybarra
