When asked about the video for "Cold As Ice XL", Blacklite District said "This is hands down my favorite music video of my career so far, because of what it represents. It represents the future in terms of the band being a live band. It represents letting the past go. It shows that you can get past the trauma of your life and come out the other side swinging for the fences. Clinton Cunanan directed and edited the video. He and I have made many visuals over the years, and every time we work on a project, the vibe gets deeper and the inspirations is always there. It's also the first video to feature original drummer Graham Spillman, and my new guitarist Justin Sundlin."
