Edmonton’s Black Mastiff are blasting off to “Star Base 77” with their new animated music video. The latter comes in support of their forthcoming album “Loser Delusions”, due out on October 18th.
“As a songwriter, this track is about us all being insignificant in the world while we’re so obsessed with whether or not we get likes “Hope the station knows that I’ve arrived”.
The guitar, drums, and bass are working together with a very precise heavy heating march. That’s how we do our thing. When singing this song I thought a lot about Bobby Liebling and Blue Cheer doing “Summertime Blues”.
As a filmmaker, I love animation and movies old rotoscope movies like ‘The Hobbit’ from 1977. I tried to draw from that style but with an added sense of humour,” comments vocalist/guitarist Bobby Yiannakoulias.
