Release[edit]

"Way Too Far" was released to active rock and heritage rock radio stations without an official impact date sometime in March 2012. It debuted and peaked at number 38 on the United States Billboard Mainstream Rock chart,[3] failing to match the success of the album's first two singles. The song was inducted into the Loudwire Cage Match Hall of Fame after Internet users voted for it over various other songs five days in a row, beating songs by Slash, Demon Hunter, Pennywise, Metallica, and Hollywood Undead.[4]

Music video[edit]

The music video for "Way Too Far" premiered on May 7, 2012,[5] and was directed by Joshua Allen, who also directed the previous music video for "Chaos Lives in Everything".
