When Dead Oceans released The Broken String we certainly did not expect there to be a Bishop Allen video featuring Michael Cera (Juno, Arrested Development, Superbad). As it turns out, the new video for “Middle Management” (from The Broken String and now the soundtrack to Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist) is culled from various scenes of Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist, which means that Bishop Allen and Michael Cera appear in the same video! We are thrilled with the end result, and can’t wait to see Bishop Allen perform on the big screen. For those keeping score, Nick’s (Michael Cera) band is opening for Bishop Allen in the film, and they make a cameo. And, yes, that is “Middle Management” you have heard in the movie’s trailer.
Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist comes out Oct. 3rd and the soundtrack (featuring Vampire Weekend, Band of Horses, Modest Mouse, Devendra Banhart, Bishop Allen and more) is in stores now.
Bishop Allen are currently holed up in their make-shift Brooklyn recording studio, writing and recording the follow-up to their 2007 album, The Broken String. Tentatively planned for release in early 2009, the band plans to road test many of the new songs on a US tour in November 2008.
Touring and recording are not the only exciting things happening in the world of Bishop Allen. The band makes a cameo appearance in the major motion picture release Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist, which stars Michael Cera (Arrested Development, Superbad, Juno) and Kat Dennings (40 Year-old Virgin). The band appears in the movie during a scene where Nick and Norah first meet. The trailer for this movie was just released, and features Bishop Allen’s song “Middle Management” as well as a brief glimpse of the band onstage during the movie. Songs by Modest Mouse, Vampire Weekend, We Are Scientists, Band of Horses, Devendra Banhart and more are featured alongside Bishop Allen in the film.
Bishop Allen’s “Click Click Click Click” video will broadcast tonight on MTV2′s Subterranean at 1AM ET. Congrats to Bishop Allen and director Randy Bell on making their MTV2 debuts.
We are excited to share the video for one of 2007′s finest pop songs,
Bishop Allen’s “Click Click Click Click”. Taken from their recent album, The Broken String, this video is the perfect visual accompaniment to the song, using an amazing stop animation technique, made out of real photographs of the band performing “Click Click Click Click”. Yes, you read that correctly, these photographs were all really taken to make this video! “Click Click Click Click” was directed by Randy Bell.
