Jukebox the Ghost has a lot to be thankful for this holiday season. They’ve crisscrossed the United States with the likes of The Dismemberment Plan, Guster, and even spent time at sea aboard the floating Rombello and Ships & Dip 4 festivals. Just a few weeks ago, the band returned from a European tour.
None of this would be possible without the support of amazing fans that the band is infinitely grateful for this holiday season. Now, as the band gears up for a headlining tour with the Spinto Band, Deleted Scenes, Savior Adore and the White Birds (see dates below), the guys have released a new video for “Half Crazy” from 2010′s Everything Under the Sun. The video was shot over several days in south Philadelphia by local animation production company Juggling Wolf.
“It was stop-motion, so each scene was painstakingly shot frame-by-frame (think ‘Wallace and Gromit’, but with us instead),” says Jukebox’s Tommy Siegel. “They hand-drew over 2,500 animated mouths (whoa), which were taped to my face one by one. Under the direction of Marina, Jason and Ian, we moved very slowly for a few days and resisted the urge to itch ourselves for hours on end. We hope you dig the end result of Jukebox the Ghost’s first time participating in a stop-motion experiment!”
As Jukebox heads into 2012, look for additional dates supporting Jack’s Mannequin and news about a new record.
