As I write this, I’m hungry. And I’m watching a brand new video by Fishboy for “IMAVOLCANO” that features pizza. I’m about to head up to Bellingham with my new wife and go to Rudy’s, which has an awesome half-price deal on Wednesdays. We’ll be stocking up with leftovers. For now, I’ll watch this awesome bearded dude dance around at pizza joints with a slice and wish it was me.
I’ve been a fan of Denton, TX band Fishboy for years. Frequent readers might remember that Albatross was among my top 2 or 3 albums of 2009. The band is set to release a limited pressed single and comic book combo called IMAVOLCANO, and it features the same quirky sense of humor the band has crafted for years.
States Fishboy’s Eric Michener about the video:
It was shot in a 90 minute “pizza crawl” last month in Denton, Texas in a 3 mile span on University Dr. We only had enough time to shoot proper pizza establishments (although I’ll admit its a secondary menu item at Schlotzky’s) We left out the three grocery stores, the SAMS snack bar, the health food store, and almost a dozen gas stations and drug stores which sell frozen pies. I also just realized we left off a Tacobell/Pizza Hut. So our stops are far from complete. I drive this road every day and I always think about the Bagel Bites jingle “when pizza’s on a bagel, you can eat pizza anytime.” I can already eat pizza anytime!
“IMAVOLCANO” follows the premiere of “Baby Food Jar” on You Ain’t No Picasso.
Watch the video below and listen to/order the new single from Fishboy’s bandcamp page.
I took the above photo at an acoustic Fishboy performance at the Fremont Troll in Seattle. Below is a photo rundown on the new single. If you’re like me, you’ll head over to Fishboy’s bandcamp page and pre-order the single (which comes out in early August). And if you’re REALLY like me, you’ll also grab Fishboy’s digital-only, live-acoustic version of Classic Creeps.
