Set It Off’s Video For ‘Ancient History’ Is The Break-Up Video You Never Knew You Needed

We've all been there: the arguments, the regret, the making up again. We feel ya, Cody.

Last night Set It Off released a video for their uber catchy track 'Ancient History'. That's it up there. Watch it.

Here's what Cody revealed about the inspiration for the track: "Not too long ago I was in a relationship with someone that was very serious. We had a very firm connection, we lived together, it was great, but one day we had to split ways. Once the initial storm from the breakup had settled we realized something. We missed the sex. We knew it wasn't a smart choice, but it was an easy choice. So then came the 2AM calls and the sneaking off. We eventually realized we were doing more damage than helping so we decided to call it quits and just stay friends,"

What about that cheeky double clap? "This song is about that particular situation. Also, the foundation vibe for this song was "That Thing You Do" from the popular Tom Hanks film and I LOOOVEE that song so much so I'm happy that double clap made it's way into a Set It Off song."

The video release follows the boys' announcement for a headline tour in the UK and Europe throughout May with Decade and Brawlers joining them on all dates.
