Published Jun 03, 2015With a nine-member lineup and a drive to deliver the groove, it's no surprise that Vancouver-based ensemble Five Alarm Funk know how to get a party started. That fun-loving attitude has wormed its way into the band's brand new video for "Robot," and Exclaim! has got your first look at the new clip.
The group teamed up with Vancity production unit Atomic Cartoons to make the video, which is the first in a series of clips corresponding to the band's new concept album Abandon Earth. It blends live action and green screen footage with fancy 3D/AFX techniques to tell the story of the world's destruction at the hands of a killer robot — and Five Alarm Funk's quest to survive.
It's not all doom and gloom, though, thanks to some vibrant live footage of the band in concert. If you like what you see, you can check out the band live on their upcoming tour dates, which are listed below.
