Having recently announced their hotly anticipated debut album Information Overload for March 11th, Aussie rockers PLANET today drop the album’s title track alongside a brand new video. Watch and listen below.
The track follows on from recent singles Need More and Resign as well as the Maybe Someday EP. Frontman Matt Took comments on the video for title track Information Overload:
We wanted the video for ‘Information Overload’ to be as intense and sporadic as humanly possible so the idea was to make three separate clips and add in affected news clipping and ads. The final product was filming these clips projected on old TV/broadcast monitors – quite obviously portraying the title of the song, but subtly highlighting how when there is so much going on you can’t think at all or do anything with clarity.
On previous single Need More, Guitarist Tommy Peppitt adds:
It’s the first time we’ve had a piano feature more prominently on a track. We also explored the synth world a bit and tried to push the song a bit further sonically. For me, it’s definitely a bit of a curveball track on the album and I can’t wait to play it live.
On top of the album announcement, the band have also announced a 13 date UK and Ireland tour for 2022. Having toured alongside DMA’s and Liam Gallagher in the past, this will be the band’s first UK headline tour. Tickets are available here*.
