“We can say with pride that the result exceeded our own expectations,” said Van Pelt about the new video. Director Emily Kai Bock (Grimes’ upcoming “Oblivion”) explained, “The pyrotechnics were real, we didn’t do any visual effects – It was more fun that way. Both Graham and I suffered one minor burn each and Neal, our DP smashed a lens after tripping while running down the smoke-filled train tunnel. It was sorta insane, but a huge blast.” Kai Bock explained the concept behind the video, saying, “I wanted to make a surreal narrative video using Graham as the lead character,…I had been watching a lot of ‘X-Files’ and had finished a short doc on ex-prisoners integrating into community at the time – so I had these themes of outcasts and aliens on my mind.” With a Canadian tour dates underway, Miracle Fortress will finish off the month with performances throughout Quebec.
