Seven Day Sleep says,

“Our single Red Lipstick Murders” is about a witch who’s coven gets slaughtered and she’s out to seek revenge on the murders. The general message of the song is about being true to yourself  and fighting social judgment and being able to push through it. We all go through rough situations and we all have fears but you can “kill” that negative environment and move on with pride. 

We all love gore, horror and fantasy elements so we wanted our first video to represent who we are as a band and the things we enjoy and we think our music expresses that but we also wanted our visuals to represent that aspect of us as well.” 

Now without further adieu, here’s the Official video for “Red Lipstick Murders”:
