Powerman 5000 singer/creative mastermind, Spider One, has made a new video for the primarily creepy “Strange People Doing Strange Things” track from the band’s brand new album, The Noble Rot, available now!
Unlike anything this multi-talented front man has created, Spider’s video is a wild roller-coaster of Don Hertzfeldtian minimalist doodles mixed with David Cronenberg inspired body horror and sprinkled with pop culture references aplenty including sci-fi heroes, classic movie monsters, kooky aliens, droogish film icons, and one intrepid little housefly. This monumental undertaking was accomplished with nearly 3,000 separate drawings and took many months to complete.
Spider shared these thoughts about the video, “I’d like to say making this video was a labor of love but it really was a test of my own sanity. What started out as some simple ‘follow the bouncing ball’ animation ended up being a challenge to see if I could actually finish this thing. Just shy of three thousand drawings later, it is what it is. Next time I attempt an animated video, I will choose a shorter song!”
Critics and audiences are hailing PM5K’s The Noble Rot calling the album “the natural follow-up to their past work, with a divine and powerful life-igniting energy” (Indie Pulse Music) and “worth getting excited for: this is a band who still have all of their original mojo after all these years!” (Cryptic Rock). Metal Wani declares “the lyrics are offbeat, eccentric, and expertly crafted…a must-listen for fans” while Metal Trenches says “for listeners that liked them way back when and then lost touch, this is a great album to rediscover them with…the songs are consistently catchy and the band never seems to repeat themselves.”
