Lesson of the day; don’t leave Adam Lazzara to look after your gaff while you pop off on your hols. He’ll probably raise it to the ground.
That’s what he’s up to in the video for Taking Back Sunday’s ‘Better Homes And Gardens’. Without a Monty Don or Carol Smiley (don’t worry, American readers, you’re not supposed to understand – Ed) in sight, the frontman is quite literally burning down the house.
“Eddie (Reyes) had this wonderful idea of watching a home burn to the soundtrack of “Better Homes And Gardens,”” says Lazzara. “With the help of the Greensboro fire department we were able to make that happen. As I was sitting there watching the house burn, and they were running playback of the song, there couldn’t have been anything more fitting. It was very emotional.”
The track is taken from the band’s most recent album ‘Happiness Is’, which was released last year via Hopeless Records. Check out the video for ‘Better Homes And Gardens’ below.
