Spindrift have released the video for “Theme from Ghost Patrol,” the latest in their series of music video/film collaborations from the album ‘Classic Soundtracks, Vol. 1.’
The seventh video in the series finds the psychedelic pioneers collaborating with directors Sam Barnett and Jean Balest to create a B-movie inspired faux horror sequence. Barnett said of the collaboration, “I had been working mostly on things of more serious tone and ‘Ghost Patrol’ was a great opportunity for some authentic fun weirdness. I had also been looking for an excuse to make a stop motion film, it’s playful on the surface but also unsettling, which is exactly the feeling I got from the song.”
Spindrift will be embarking upon a tour of North America with The Black Angels and Dead Meadow in October; see the complete tour schedule here.
A record release party for ‘Classic Soundtracks, Vol. 1’ will be held on September 8 at The Echoplex in Los Angeles. Spindrift will also play several headlining shows of their own in California, Nevada, and Delaware, as well as making an appearance at the Mission Creek Music Festival in San Francisco.
