Hamilton, Ontario-based hardcore quintet, DEAD TIRED have revealed an animated video for their single “White Caps.” According to the band, every 5 seconds you see actually took around 24 hours to create. The concept is said to be based on the 1984 sci-fi novel Neuromancer, by American-Canadian writer William Gibson. In other news, head below to check out a handful of newly-announced Ontario-area shows.

Regarding the video, Motion Designer and 3D Generalist Andrew Pierce elaborated, “I wanted to play with the lyrics, ‘I thought I was free of it but it sucked me back in.’ and bring them to life visually.”

Guitarist Franz Stefanik adds that he “was in talks with Andrew about doing a video prior to even releasing Full Vol. The two of us had a short discussion, and then we let him have total control and free rein. We were all stoked to see what he came up with and we are beyond happy with the results. The more you watch it, the more you notice little things that go on through the video, and it’s especially cool watched on a big screen.”

With a boat-load of pre-order and pre-save options here, take the time to dig into Full Vol., the latest material from the quintet which features vocalist George Pettit (also of Alexisonfire), guitarist Franz Stefanik, drummer Chris Whetstone, Nick Ball and Marco “Sparky” Bressette.
