Finally, the last video off of platinum selling album, ‘Ever After’, has been released. “By Now” was the epic finale of the story of Ever After, tying all of the videos for “Haven’t Had Enough”, “Desperate Measures”, and “Stutter” together.

Many theories have been shared on social media about the meaning of the video. Whether it is simply a dramatic end to the story that went along with the album, or a metaphor for Josh’s struggle with addiction, it is really open to interpretation. Whatever you choose to believe the video and song means, I’m sure we can all agree that it is one of, if not the best, video the guys have made to date.

The video portrays Josh getting caught up in his love for the leading female, Darla Taylor (who played Queen Carolina in the other videos for ‘Ever After’), and getting lost in the world of sex, drugs, and alcohol, and stealing money from the rest of the band. The video is full of action packed scenes of car chases, fighting, and murder.

If you haven’t seen the latest video from the Vancouver band, be sure to check it out and see the ending of the ‘Ever After’ saga for yourself.


I’m a Toronto girl born and raised but have been living in Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick since 2010. Music and writing are my two passions, so what better place for me to be than a writer with Canadian Beats? I have been writing for the blog since May of 2013 and have had so many great experiences because of it. I listen to almost every kind of music but my favourites are pop rock, rock, indie, folk, and any other combinations of them. Concerts are definitely my favourite place to be, especially when you’re right against the barricade and can feel the energy from the band and the crowd, everyone singing the same lyrics and moving to the music. I also have a college degree in Business Administration and hope to one day be able to publish a novel.
