FOSTER THE PEOPLE RELEASE NEW VIDEO FOR
DOING IT FOR THE MONEY

HEADLINE TOUR KICKS OFF NEXT MONTH; CHERRY GLAZERR TO SUPPORT SELECT DATES

 

Foster the People has released a new video for their single “Doing It For The Money,” from new album Sacred Hearts Club, today. The video, directed by Daniel Henry, was created using Google’s DeepDream technology and is one of the first music videos to do so. DeepDream is a computer vision which uses a convolutional neural network to find and enhance patterns in images, thus creating a dream-like hallucinogenic appearance.   Speaking on the video, Henry says: “In researching more about the DeepDream world,  I loved the idea of letting the collective unconscious of the internet play a part in the forming the music video. At any moment you can freeze frame and start to see a cryptic narrative that unfolds in infinite degrees. You might see a dog, or a dinosaur, or a dead president in these hallucinations, or it could just be projections of our inner turmoil.”   Praised by ABC News as “a clear winner and the band’s strongest effort to date,” Sacred Hearts Club also features stand out track “Sit Next To Me.” The band recently delivered a solid performance of the song, which was touted as “pure shimmering pop” by The Associated Press, on The Late Late Show with James Corden. The track is currently getting airplay at alternative radio with WKQX Chicago and Alt Nation already leading the charge. Sacred Hearts Club is available physically, digitally and on vinyl now. Special packages are available in the band’s merch store.   Following appearances at Lollapalooza and Osheaga this past weekend, Foster the People will perform at other major festivals including Bumbershoot Festival and The Meadows Music & Arts Festival during their headline tour this fall. The band will play in major markets including Denver, Boston and Atlanta before wrapping with an appearance at the Austin City Limits music festival on October 13. Cherry Glazerr will support on select dates. For tour and ticket information please visit www.fosterthepeople.com.

About The Author Kris Engelhart

I am a small business owner, freelance writer, and part-time piano instructor in Charlotte, NC. My musical career started at the age of five when I was forced into taking piano lessons. I played flute in the school band and added the guitar as a young teen. There is nothing I would rather do than be at a live show. My first concert was Shaun Cassidy at the Memorial Auditorium in Buffalo in 1978. My top five live shows ever are: 1. Bruce Springsteen and the E-Street Band – Memorial Auditorium, Buffalo, NY 1984- They played for 3 ½ hours and it was awesome. 2. Carolina Rebellion- Metrolina Expo Grounds, Charlotte, NC, May, 2011 – The first ever Carolina Rebellion featured over 15 bands with Avenged Sevenfold headlining. Non-stop music for over 12 hours. 3. Chevelle- Food Lion Speed Street, Charlotte, NC, May, 2008 - The first time I ever saw Chevelle live and I was hooked! 4. Skillet with Red- Bojangle’s Coliseum, Charlotte, NC, April, 2010 – Skillet is one of my favorite bands and they totally kick it live. 5. 106.5 The End’s Weenie Roast #9- Verizon Wireless Amiptheater, Charlotte, NC , October, 2003- Featured Staind, Shinedown, Three Days Grace.
