|On May 17th, noon EST, Noah and The Whale will present a short film about the making of their new album, Last Night On Earth. The short film is edited and narrated by the band’s Charlie Fink, who had previously directed the film accompaniment for their album The First Days Of Spring. The Making of Last Night On Earth sees the band move on from the touring of The First Days Of Spring to a very different new album, recorded between London and Los Angeles, with Fink co-producing alongside Jason Lader (The Strokes).
In a specially designed online broadcast, The Making of Last Night On Earth will be premiered exclusively at www.LastNightOnEarthCinema.com at noon EST on May 17 and will be followed by a live webchat about the film with Charlie Fink. Subsequent screenings will be scheduled at set times on the site.
Fans are invited to book their seats in Noah and The Whale’s Cinema in advance of the screening in order to gain access to the site and enter by going to www.LastNightOnEarthCinema.com. Each attendee to the screening will be provided with a unique URL on their ticket, which can only be used once.
As well as the screening and webchat, fans attending the online event will additionally be able to listen to ten original demos from the album streamed on the site, with notes about each song written by Fink to accompany it. This is the first time these demos have been aired, giving a privileged view into the making of the album for Noah and The Whale fans. This experience of watching a documentary made by the band, being able to listen to all their demos and chat with Fink about it offers fans a rare and spectacular view into the world of the band.
As with all things Noah and The Whale, the Last Night On Earth Cinema is ceaselessly inventive in terms of both aesthetic design and technological craftiness. The site is built in HTML5 and will function on the iPad, Android, and iPhone, while the invitation process is fully integrated with Facebook and Twitter so people can sign in using their accounts, invite friends, and post a status update saying that they are attending.
