Earlier this summer Amanda Palmer and The Grand Theft Orchestra hit the road and visited art galleries and other non-traditional venues, to spend time with a few of their Kickstarter supporters and unveil the music from the THEATER IS EVIL record as well as some beautiful artwork they had commissioned to go along with it. Only a few lucky folks got to attend, and Amanda wanted to share the music and art with everyone, and we’re happy to help. So sit back and visit with Amanda, as she gives us a special guided tour through the process behind the art.
Then download “The Killing Type” (recordstoreday.com) as a preview of the new record. Music and art, from Amanda to you, a way to get excited about THEATRE IS EVIL.

This massive chaos-fest of a video was co-created and directed by Wayne Coyne, Amanda Palmer, George Salisbury, and Michael McQuilken. Everybody did shit, art happened! It was filmed over two 105-degree days in Oklahoma City in the summer of 2012, in five locations: Kamps, The Conservatory, The Boom, Wayne's house, and The Colcord Hotel. Massive thanks to the awesome video extras of Oklahoma City (and many lands beyond!) who gave their time shouting, dancing, getting glittered, and giving us their beautiful faces. YOU ARE AMAZING...OKLAHOMA CITY FTW!!!!! And an extra special thank you to Wayne Coyne for opening up his house, his crew, his brain, and his extra boxes of gold glitter to our band of freaks. ROCK.
