SPINDRIFT PREMIERE VIDEO “THEME FROM CONFUSION RANGE”
(A NEW VIDEO PREMIERING EVERY THREE WEEKS!)
NEW ALBUM “CLASSIC SOUNDTRACKS” FORTHCOMING
Psychedelic western troupe, Spindrift have premiered a new video for “Theme from Confusion Range” on IFC.com. The video was directed by Simon Chan (Dead Meadow “Three Kings”, The Sword, Mars Volta) and is reminiscent to 70’s exploitation films. The band has announced that this is the first in a series of short films/trailers/videos to premiere on IFC.com every three weeks with at least five nearing completion in the coming weeks. The videos are based around songs from the bands forthcoming album “Classic Soundtracks Vol. 1” to drop early May on Xemu Records (Dead Meadow, The Morning After Girls). The album was mixed and engineered by Ethan Allen (Gram Rabbit) and is currently being mastered by Howie Weinberg (Nirvana, The Beastie Boys, Ramones).
“Classic Soundtracks Vol. 1” is a highly cinematic album. The songs on the album were written as themes from films past and present and range greatly in style. A different director is represented for each video ranging in cinematic style as well. The bands music has appeared on HBO’ East Bound and Down and films like Quentin Tarantino’s production of Hell Ride and in upcoming films including Treasure Of The Black Jaguar, Dust Up, and Legend of the Widower Colby Wallace.
Spindrift has been mesmerizing the musical spectrum for over ten years. The band’s release “The Legend Of God’s Gun” (2009 Tee Pee Records) was based off an independent western film on the same name (Directed by Mike Bruce) that premiered at several film festivals and went on to have national distribution through a DIY ethic.
Spindrift has played live with such artists as Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Robby Krieger, Dead Meadow, Black Angels, Black Mountain and The Dandy Warhols. Plans are being set to tour Europe and the USA April through June.
