Ron 'Bumblefoot' Thal Releases Epic Video
"Don't Know Who To Pray To Anymore"

November 24, 2015 | New York, NY

Guitar virtuoso, vocalist, and producer Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal has finally released “Don’t Know Who to Pray to Anymore”, the ambitious upcoming music video from his latest Bumblefoot album Little Brother Is Watching. The clip debuted exclusively on LOUDWIRE, with a teaser premiering earlier in November at Guitar World.

Clocking in at over seven minutes, “Don’t Know Who to Pray to Anymore” is a true return to form for the epic music video format, with storyline footage showcasing characters in various stages of life, from childhood to adult, hitting an emotional 'rock bottom', faced with a life-changing choice. The stories are left open-ended, so you can ask yourself what choice you would make.

"This song speaks for those that feel lost, betrayed, disillusioned, when we question all we believe in. When we start to lash out, and punish ourselves.” says Thal. “This is a song about being in this place, in our own personal purgatory. We know we need to heal, but we're not ready to let go."

Directed by Vojan Koceic, the video was a massive undertaking, filmed in three countries at 12 locations, including the Western Wall in Jerusalem, gaining exclusive access to ancient Roman ruins by the Jordanian border, with the distinction of being the only music video to ever have been shot there (filmed by Director of photography Ami Bornstein). Additional band performances were filmed in Croatia at the Fortress of Klis and the Diocletian Palace (locations seen on the TV show "Game of Thrones"), plus an additional 8 sets and featuring more than 50 actors.

“This video needed to be filmed in locations that have a deep historic and spiritual presence,” says Thal. Additional filming locations included The Grianan of Aileach Ring Fort at a hilltop in Northern Ireland.

Thal is no stranger to epic videos, as evidenced by the previous clip for LP
title track Little Brother Is Watching (which premiered in April on, a song touching on the pressures in an age where we, "Little Brother", are all watching. The video spins the clock on Orwell's "1984" back to 1984 BC, showing timeless power struggles like chapters of a story - dominating rule, a demand for instant gratification, a revolt and the tables turn.

In 1984, Orwell predicted there would be 'Big Brother', this governmental presence that would be watching us. But what wasn’t predicted was how technology would allow for us to have that same ability in the palm of our hands, where we can catch anything on video for the entire world to see immediately.

Thal adds, “It’s about the pressure we can put on ourselves to be perfect when everybody’s watching.”

Bumblefoot's Little Brother Is Watching album is an eccentric, upbeat collection of epic, modern rock with haunting melodies, huge choruses and witty lyrics about life in the digital age and beyond. Specifically, Thal’s own life and coming to terms with what we all face - beginnings, endings, and moving on. The album was composed, produced, recorded, mixed and mastered by Bumblefoot at his studio in New Jersey, and includes a crowd of 100 fans stomping, chanting and singing backing vocals recorded at a listening party in New York. The day after its release, the album went as high as #4 on the Rock charts in Europe.
