Steve Taylor & the Danielson Foil is the one-time collaboration of Steve Taylor & the Perfect Foil and Danielson, releasing the Wow To The Deadness EP on February 5.
The project was formed when Danielson was opening for Steve Taylor on tour in support of Taylor’s 2014 album, Goliath. Now, Steve Taylor & the Danielson Foil are releasing their video for their EP’s title track.
“It was a simple concept,” said Taylor of the video. “Roll camera, pretend you’re on fire, and have your bandmates offscreen try and extinguish you with water balloons. Bonus points were awarded for direct hits to the face. And while the video may give the impression we’re a band of former pitchers, our hit to miss ratio was about one in five.”
The video was directed by Matthew Sterling and produced by Steve Albini (Nirvana, Foo Fighters, Pixies, Jesus Lizard).
“That record is fucked up and great,” said Albini. “I did not expect that kind of music out of them. I certainly didn’t expect it to be as awesome as it was … but it ended up being really raucous and really great.”
