Director Nick Larson about The „Remainder” video: „I thought a lot about the lyrics when looking for content and kept coming back to humans and their impact both on each other and the world around them. In many ways we disrespect and destroy what others have built and I wanted to reflect that in the video. My goal for the video was to create a sense of unease and remind people that the past should not be forgotten. I also felt very moved by this quote from Grzegorz Kwiatkowski interview about the Stutthof concentration camp, „Many people want to change history. I feel these shoes, this is the old truth. So, we have to secure these artifacts from the Holocaust because it will not be so easy to say it didn’t happen. It’s kind of an anti-war statement, but also a ‚never forget’ statement.” And though much of the video had been finished when this article was published, this quote became a driving force behind finishing the video. In America, we see a rise of nationalism and immigrants being detained in alarming and disgusting ways in what can only really be called concentration camps. It feels like we haven’t learned anything from the past.”
