Secret Broadcast Make 3-year Olds Cry in New Video
eOne Music Canada rock group Secret Broadcast (www.SecretBroadcast.com) has released their brand new music video for “Raygun”, the forthcoming single from their latest EP “Hungry Ghost”.
The song has quickly became a fan favorite, performing it as part of their encores on their previous cross-Canada tours in 2012. Right from the start, this was the single of choice from Canadian radio programmers and will be going to radio in September.
The video features the band performing at a day care centre. “We thought it would be a lot of fun to put on a rock n roll show for a bunch of 3-year olds and see what happened,” says Matt Lightstone, Guitarist and Vocalist. “Some kids cried hysterically, some kids covered their ears, but for the most part we were able to win over the crowd.
“Raygun” was directed and co-produced by filmmaker Josh Warburton of Vulture Culture Films who has previously directed videos for Monster Truck, Arkells and Cancer Bats. Says drummer Keith Heppler. “Music has been proven to be a highly effective tool to foster learning and deepen children’s understanding and comprehension. Except for the smell of urine, the kids held exactly the same patience as teenagers. Actually, at some of the festivals we’ve played at, the smells were the same, too.”
Secret Broadcast have shared the stage with such acts as Metric, The Stills, Matthew Good, and Tokyo Police Club. They performed at Toronto and Calgary’s Virgin Festivals in 2008, main stage at Virgin Festival Calgary 2009, and have showcased at CMJ, NXNE, CMW, JunoFest, and New Music West. In 2009, their debut LP, Exploding Spiders, quickly climbed the Canadian college and commercial radio charts, hitting the Top 40 on the Canadian Campus Radio Chart while the first single, Out Of Control, reached #60 on the Canadian Alt/Rock charts. In late 2010, Secret Broadcast relocated to Toronto and created their new Hungry Ghost EP with acclaimed producer, Jon Drew (Tokyo Police Club, F**ked Up, Arkells, Dinosaur Bones).
