Midnight Juggernauts have announced a string of new headlining dates as the Melbourne electro act prepare to release their third studio album Uncanny Valley, due out Friday, 14th June. The national tour begins in August, giving fans a couple of months to figure out their dance routines.
For those who can’t wait another 2 weeks for Uncanny Valley to spray its load in their quivering ears, Midnight Juggernauts have released the video clip for current single Memorium. Directed by the Juggers’ own Vincenzi Vandella, the clip is a chronological tour of the evolution of CGI, which concludes with a spectacular sequence shot with a hacked Xbox Kinect.
As the band explain, Midnight Juggernauts’ decided to create the clip in order to show the origins of an incredible form of technology that has become so commonplace in modern pop culture:
“With Computer Generated Imagery now a standard feature of our visual language and often indistinguishable from reality, we decided to take a long look back to the genesis of this technology.
“Well before the blockbuster milestones and mainstream acceptance, we chart CGI’s origins mid last century within the experimental computer labs of universities, corporations, and various trailblazing individuals. These were the pioneer years of CGI.”
Midnight Juggernauts’ Uncanny Valley album tour runs through August and September.
