Methods will be hosting the premier screening of their Mankind single video at The Lighthouse Cinema and Café Bar in Wolverhampton. This is a free event on November 24th at 1pm – 3pm.
Light House is a charity and arts venue whose aim is to emphasise the cultural, social and economic life of Wolverhampton, the West Midlands and further afield. Using media particularly film, video and photography they provide an avenue for musicians, filmmakers and artists alike.
Methods released the single Mankind on the 5th October and it has been played extensively on local and national stations, including BBC Introducing and The Premium Blend Radio Show, where they were guests on November 13th.
The single is darkness wrapped in electro indie/rock. The cutting vocals and meaningful lyrics predict mankind’s demise. An apocalyptic masterpiece of musical collaboration. Its impossible to stop listening.
Methods enlisted the help of the talented Dan Crew, to bring together a video that promoted the single in the correct visual form. The video is genius animation in an anime and illustrator style, an apocalyptic vision of mankind, its technologies and threats to itself and the world. I have been lucky enough to see the preview and it is awesome, full of spectacular animation that works seamlessly with the single.
There will be a chance to meet the band at the preview with Dan Crew. Dan will be chatting about animation and the video and will be happy to answer any questions. So, all fans, musos, illustrators, photographers and videographers get along to the venue. The band are genuinely funny and friendly guys (Vocals - Ash Bradley, Key/Vocals - Jon Nash, Guitar/Keys - Ryan Deakin, Bass - Adam Hall, Drums - Peter Bates), the music is electro indie/rock awesomeness and the video an animation genius; with the Lighthouse as a dramatic backdrop, what more could you want?
