Illuminati Bop Video

Hard to believe it’s already been two years since The High Dials returned with the Foreverish EP.

To celebrate the occasion, the band released a video for “Illuminati Bop” this week. The jagged jump cuts, propaganda fragments and overall feel of disorientation kind of sums up the mood of 2020. But it should still make you dance.

There are a very limited number of autographed cassette copies of this release still available. Your support on Bandcamp Fridays has been a huge boost to the boys this year. Thank you super fans, you know who you are!

Guerilla Guru Video

Ever wondered what cats know that you don’t know?

“Guerilla Guru” travels the multiverse from a cat perspective, illuminating the mysteries of long-forgotten feline civilization. It’s another found footage collage from video collaborator Ghost Mago. Watch if you dare, then share!

Primitive Feelings Parts I & II are now available together, as a beautiful 180-gram coloured vinyl LP. Get it on Bandcamp!
