Bendigo band launches new video

Bendigo “terror-rock” band Grand Perceptor has unveiled the results of its busy month of labour.

After being unearthed for Groovin the Moo this year, the band has had a boost in its following.

Yesterday, Grand Perceptor launched its latest music video, which was shot in one night at the Bendigo train station.

“We only shot this one a couple of weeks ago,” lead singer Sparrow said.

“We put all our creative energy together and worked out how we could pull off making music videos.

“We had to use all our resources to find creative people around Bendigo.”

The band had a very limited budget to work with and Sparrow said they were proud of their efforts.

“We think we have pulled off a pretty good result with such a low budget."

The song, We Are the Future, is available as a free download on the Triple J Unearthed website.

Grand Perceptor also filmed another clip last weekend and is hoping to have it ready to launch by October.

But the creative minds of this popular Bendigo band have also been busy writing music.

“Since GTM, we have mostly been writing writing and recording new songs,” Sparrow said.

“The new tracks are pretty exciting. It feels like every time we record a new collection, they get a better and bigger sound.

“We have been collecting our tracks together mostly and have a single launch in Melbourne on September 29.”

Sparrow said Grand Perceptor would also look at releasing more singles and videos online.

“It’s pretty effective to release YouTube videos,” he said.

“It gets more attention than CD, which are harder to distribute. So it’s easier to get to people digitally.”

Grand Perceptor’s next Bendigo gig will be in October.

“We are looking at bringing another Melbourne band to Bendigo,” Sparrow said.

“Once it’s all confirmed it should be a pretty good show.”
