"SHARPTEETH" Single/Video Out Today!
June 25th, 2013

Hello!

We're super psyched to share "Sharpteeth," the second single from Fever Forms. The single features two exclusive B-sides and is available digitally from iTunes and and eMusic, or get the limited edition fluorescent pink vinyl 7" from Peek-A-Boo Records.

The video finds a group of furred and feathered usurpers performing the tune in a world somewhere between Lawrence Welk and Enter the Void. Psychic misadventures ensue. Directed by the band, the video was shot at the Scottish Rite theater in Austin, TX and in its surrounding mystery jungles.

Side A:
Sharpteeth

Side B:
Pyramid Kosmos (Cosmic Redaction Version)
Microchasm

FEVER FORMS Stereoscopic Trailer
May 29th, 2013

This is a 3D video! To view it you'll need to learn to cross your eyes and focus on the "third image" that forms in the middle. This technique is also known as free-viewing, you can read much more about it on the web. Here's a pretty concise explanation to start with: chasm.com/crosseye.htm

It takes some dedicated practice but trust us, it's worth it. Oh, also we have a new album coming in July!

Love,
