In other news, the festival’s new addition, Laura Jane Grace and the Devouring Mothers, just released a Wayne’s World-inspired video for “I Hate Chicago."
You can watch that below.
Also, Palaye Royale, who were just added, unveiled a fan-made video for “Hospital Beds” earlier this month.
The new music video features old footage layered on top of each other. According to a message put out by the band, fan Ansley Wiederholt created the art film.
Additionally, the band say the music video is meant to replicate “the outer depths of thinking, feeling, creating and existing.”
Check out the band’s statement, which is present at the beginning of the video, below:
“Four years ago in a basement in Los Angeles, Sebastian and Emerson would work endlessly editing art films for every song on Palaye Royale’s first EP ‘The Ends Beginning.’ In this time developing a style that mixed experimental footage to accompany the music. A sort of historical utopia. Including footage of humanity in its glory and destruction, ranging from the 1920s-1970s, this film footage is overlaid on one another to explore the outer depths of thinking, feeling, creating and existing.
“Now to see the fans continue these ideas we developed as art films and to add their own personal touch into the editing and message of the visual is absolutely inspiring to us. This art film for “Hospital Beds” was created by the very talented Ansley Wiederholt, a Soldier of the Royal Council. We are thrilled to see this community of revolutionists come together and strive to create something bigger than all of us. This is the greatest family we have ever known. A place where it is safe to create and help one another grow and evolve past the expectations of normality.”
