On April 14, 2017, Chad Smith announced on Twitter that the band would be shooting the video for the song that night at their show in Atlanta, and for fans to “wear something colorful”.[2] The video for Goodbye Angels was released on May 9, 2017 and is directed by Thoranna Sigurdardottir also known as TOTA and stars Klara Kristin.[3]

The video switches between a storyline following a girl’s night and live footage of the band. Initially, the girl is partying with friends in a parking lot, and soon she has to outrun a security guard and she steals a bike to pedal to a show. When she arrives, she steals someone’s beer, and encounters Anthony Kiedis, Chad Smith, and Flea backstage. She briefly makes out with another woman in a toilet to get a pill from her pocket, then watches the rest of the show. By the end, she finds herself crying alone as crew members clear the empty arena.[3][4]

“Goodbye Angels” was first performed live on July 2016 at the band’s T in the Park headlining set in Scotland.[5]
