Old Monk release new single “Volcanic Prisons”

Old Monk are concluding the year with ‘Volcanic Prisons’, the 4th and final track in their digital singles series. The new prog-punk mind-melting garage rocker was premiered by Big Takeover Magazine on Friday. Singer/guitarist, Josh Carrafa directed the  8-bit animated video for the song which is coming soon. He provides the back story:

One day I was thinking about how crazy volcanoes are. The fact that liquid earth shoots out of holes on the earth’s surface is amazing, really. Then I thought about how it would suck to be thrown in to the mouth of a volcano. Then I wrote a song about a sailor who crashes into an island and gets captured by robots who try and throw him into a volcano but he gets saved by animals at the last second.”

Old Monk “Seymour” music video premieres on Brooklyn Vegan

Old Monk’s new music video for “Seymour” premiered earlier this week on Brooklyn Vegan! Watch the video below:

Local indie rockers Old Monk are busy finishing the follow-up to 2012′s Birds of Belize, a record that should be out in early 2014. Meanwhile, the band have a stopgap single out now on Eenie Meenie, the very catchy “Seymour.” We’ve got the premiere of its video in this post. Using 8-bit graphics it works in references to Pitfall!, plus a slew of classic films (Safety Last, Annie Hall, The Good, the Bad & the Ugly to name three) and was directed/animated by Josh Carrafa who you may know from his Music History Gifs website. You can check it out below.
