Vomit is trending, now that Bieber and everyone are getting into it. But the latest video from Seattle metal band Into the Storm for their song “K’nuckles” (off the Captains EP) was filmed before Bieber made yuking popular. I take that back; vomit has been trendy for a minute. (See Popped Collar Block Party Vomit, and Man Stares at His Own Vomit.) Battle-yarn vomit, though, as evidenced by Into the Storm, this is new, and non-Bieber. There’s also a man screaming, and a small Claymation man stealing a ruby off a house. Into the Storm have just finished mastering an EP titled Light Lovers and Heat Mongers, which they tracked and mixed themselves - due out December 14 on 7" vinyl. The band’s guitarist, producer, and video director Matt Jahn spoke.
The video is hand made stop motion? How much weed do y’all smoke?
Yes. It's made from hand-made stop-motion filming. We like to make things hard on ourselves for some unknown reason. This is our second attempt at stop-motion animation leading to the production quality being slightly above the previous "Tearing Apart Space & Time." The idea for the video was heavily fueled by alcohol and THC consumption, with the conclusion being, that beards are awesome, don't fuck with robots, and K'nuckles is the greatest adventurer that ever was and will be.
A cat shat on the set?
The table the set was built upon went through four different locations during construction. The first location was inside of a room the size of a small apartment, where it got the first stages of all the terrain put into place. Then it sat there for close to eight months before anything else happened. During that time, a cat named Toki took up residence as the sole owner of the set. It was a cluttered room and we called the set Tokiyo. There may have been some shitting.
