Last month !!! released their latest album, As If. They've now shared a video for one of its tracks, 'Ooo', directed by Adult Swim-affiliated writer/director, Casper Kelly.

Speaking about the ideas behind the video, Kelly stated:

"'Ooo' started from a feeling of a relationship teetering on the edge of breaking up or going to the next level, combined with an instrumental section in the middle with echoey sounds that evoked photon torpedoes in science fiction battles. I decided to combine the two. I also liked the idea of combining the feeling of the Star Wars cantina bar with a college mixer. I tried to make it not too story oriented but I bit more abstract - I wanted a lot of the details of what happened between the Captain and the green woman implied or submerged. Lastly, I love combining repeating visual movements with the repetition in the wonderful chorus - hence the ship getting rocked by torpedoes and people scrambling in time with the beat. It was such a thrill to shoot. I wish I could live in the world of this video."

In other news, the band have revealed that the support act for their upcoming shows (dates below) is... themselves. They'll be appearing as Stereolab tribute band, Stereolad (press pic for that above); explaining this move, Nic Offer offered these words:

"Why? Just for a kicks, for a laugh, just cuz we want to. Same reasons we’ve been !!! all along. But seriously, we like a challenge, it seemed like a fun way to press our boundaries, we like to play, it was cheaper than hiring the real Stereolab to open for us and I look fantastic in a dress. So there. That seems like enough good reasons, no?"
