With the release of their album ‘Total Time’ just a few weeks away, DOOMSQUAD have unveiled a visually arresting and suitably psychedelic video for current single Pyramids On Mars. The clip was co-directed by Ghostprom and DOOMSQUAD’s Trevor Blumas for PORCH and shot in a dreamlike desert landscape the band comment: “The video is about the cyclical nature of time in correlation with memory, biology and the environment. It examines the polarities of drought and abundance, barrenness and vitality, male and female, singularly and plurality through a psychic quagmire of astral dust and mirrors.” Watch it via YouTube below.
‘Total Time’ track listing:
1. Who Owns Noon in Sandusky
2. Pyramids on Mars
3. Collective Insanity
4. Its the Nail That Counts, Not the Rope
5. Solar Ass
6. Farmer’s Almanac
7. The Very Large Array
8. Eat The Love
9. Russian Gaze
The record features a number of other contributors: Mike Haliechuk of Fucked Up plays guitar. Industrial noise experimenter David Foster aka HUREN offers vocals on Russian Gaze. Colin Fisher and Brandon Valdivia of free-jazz duo Not the Wind, Not the Flagbring instrumentals. And galactic twins Josh and Jesse Hasko, who perform as North America, are a crucial part of ‘Total Time’ as well. Over the years, the connection between DOOMSQUAD and the twins has deepened and this summer they’re joining forces: the Haskos are becoming members of DOOMSQUAD’s live act, which will take it further than it’s ever gone before.
The band will be celebrating the album’s release in Toronto on May 14th at The Smiling Buddha. They will also be debuting their new live lineup featuring Josh & Jesse Hasko (NYC) that night.
