Casualties Of Cool - Debut Animated Video


Devin Townsend's project with singer Ché Aimee Dorval, Casualties Of Cool, debuted today a promo video for the track "Mountaintop." It is an animated video drawn by animator Jessica Cope. You might remember her work from Steven Wilson's "Drive Home" and "The Raven That Refused To Sing" videos or Storm Corrosion's "Drag Ropes" video. Now you can enjoy "Mountaintop" right here. Take the journey.




Devin comments: "Here is the video for 'Mountaintop' from Casualties Of Cool. I have been a fan of Jessica Cope's work for a while now, and the opportunity to work with her rose for this album and we are thrilled with the result. Although the concept of the video is loosely based on the concept of the record, we found it worked better as a stand alone piece. Ché and I therefore decided not to have the characters in the video portray us personally. I hope you enjoy this, I'm so happy to have an opportunity to work with brilliant artists in my career. I'm very proud of this album and video!"

Casualties Of Cool will perform at the Union Chapel in London on September 4th and also at Beautiful Days Festival in Devon, England on August 17th.





Still in the topic of Devin Townsend, he recently also shared a video of his vocal recordings for the upcoming Ziltoid 2 double album. Check it out below if you are curious.

I love her works - the animations are so...emotive. It's been a while since I watched a video and felt both joy and despair within such a short space of time.

Here's her Facebook page for anyone interested.

Here's one form of art I'll never get into. Both the music and the animation are totally devoid of interest to me.

Have your frontal lobe replaced. That should help

Thanks for your highly valued opinion, but I'd rather just listen to music that's actually worth my attention.

She sang in "Ki" as well, so I'm thinking he might've invited her then. For Casualties, I really don't know but she does sings beautifully. Agree 100%.
