The band spent a day filming on location in Ireland last November, with Dailor relaying of the shoot:

“So yeah, you just kind of sit and wait for your part, and they put us up front and basically had Bill and Brent lay down in the mud. I got stabbed in the stomach and my throat slit. They just kept doing that over and over again. I decided after six or seven times that it wouldn’t be a bad way to go.”
