This Can’t End Well

It is with great pleasure that I announce the release of This Can’t End Well’s brand new music video!
It is coming out TOMORROW!

Just to get you properly excited, I have a couple preview stills and some behind the scenes photos for you!

The above images are stills from the video, by the directors Chad Michael Ward and Niko Sonnberger.
I have a whole lot to say about working with these lovely folks, but I’m going to save that for after you can actually see the video!!
Suffice to say they are awesome, and professional- awesomely professional!

Here are a couple shots from behind the scenes- so you have a teaser of what’s to come.
Our lovely Violist Kristen shot the ones of me, and I shot the rest!

Come back tomorrow to see these pictures MOVE!

I am beyond excited to tell you that This Can’t End Well is playing this year’s Noisepop festival!
Thanks to James from Isotope Comics, we were paired up with Ted Naifeh to put on a full scale radio play production of his comic, Courtney Crumrin and the Night Things.
I am playing the role of Courtney, so I have some big shoes to fill!

This thing is going to seriously rule- we’ll be doing a few songs, the very first Courtney story with voice actors/live foley, hilarious fictional commercials, and visuals by our lovely projectionist, Mediapathic.

Also? It’s FREE.

Seriously, be there.

I recently took a trip down to Los Angeles with my bandmate Kristen, so we could shoot a music video for the first single on our upcoming EP!
It was directed by the amazing and talented team of Chad Michael Ward and Niko Sonnberger.

I’m going to give the video it’s own post, so you can get a sneak peek of what Chad and Niko have planned for your eyeballs. Also, there will be a bunch of behind the scenes video and other goodness after it actually comes out!

Before all the excitement of working on the video, though, we had to drive all our gear down to LA, and get checked into our hotel.

We stayed at The Standard– which is basically my favorite hotel in Hollywood.

They will deliver booze-filled milkshakes TO YOUR ROOM.
If somebody can make that happen at my house, I would pay good money. Just saying.

They also have a pretty excellent restaurant in the lobby that’s open all night.
Behold it’s cuteness as we frantically drink coffee and decide what foods we ought to nom:

Tune in later this week for part 2: Our visit to Pygmy Hippo Shoppe!

So we did a little photo shoot the other day in my living room.
So here’s our first official band photo!
We did another sweet shoot during our epic trip to the desert on the 4th weekend, but I’ll have to post that one later.

Tonight, we are doing our first ustream in 2 weeks! Please come watch us rock.

In related news, construction is well under way for my new electric cello!!

Here it is about halfway finished!

It’s being constructed custom for me by the kind folks at Vector Electric Instruments.
When completed, it will be Red (Pantone 19-1763) with mother of pearl star shaped pitch dot inlays.

Yay!

When it arrives, there will be a HELL of a photoshoot.
oh yes.
