Music video[edit]

The video for "We Bring an Arsenal" was released on 21 May 2012.[4]

The video features the band leading a group of what looks like a riot through a city, just like guitarist Mike Lewis has described "us vs. them, underdog mentality".[1] With the band members singing along to the song, while leading through. It is the first to feature skaters since "Rooftops", in 2006. Just like the previous video, "Bring 'Em Down", it does not show the band performing in the video.

The video was shot on 3 May 2012, in London. Lostprophets also offered fans to be in the video.[5]
