So... new Instagram teaser image... even their usually enthusiastic social media following are predominantly cringing...

 

I personally don't really care for the video, honestly.

It's music that really counts.

I actually kinda liked the teaser image. The vibe I'm getting is that the whole album is going to be linked when it comes to visuals and videos etc. For example, the car in the post-movie teaser is the same one from TC, additionally Matt and Dom appear to be the same "characters".

Woooaah! How did I not see that?

 

Now I suddenly really like the 80’s vampire thing that doesn’t seem to have anything to do with songs themselves.

I have no clue what to make of a were-pire, CSI detective, and cowboy with a crude bat.

Since they started to force themselves to make a themed album, the albums started to suck.

 

The Resistance - 1984

The 2nd Law - ecology bullshit

Drones - well...drones

 

And now... 80's vampire virtual reality bullshit

I don't think so. Even if they do, they are a lot more versatile thematically, and the theme is more subtle not so much in your face

 

They do ‘cos Matt openly talked about them in interviews from the time:

 

OOS - expanding technology + the effects

Abso - ‘endings’, loosely framed around different perspectives of an apocalypse scenario

BH&R - political conspiracies/unrest throughout history, again loosely framed around different perspectives

 

Drones is the only out-and-out concept album they’ve done so obvs none of them are as strict as that but I wouldn’t say any of those themes are less subtle than T2L’s tbh, or what we’ve heard of LP8 so far.

Eh, I’d be careful not to mix lyrical themes with video/ promo aesthetic themes, atleast I don’t think anything lyrically from the last two singles confirm an 80s vampire virtual reality theme

Wow, where can i find that the new album album is about VR? I thought that only will be concept for upcoming tour and SH video (from teaser).

 

An album about technologies since OoS? I'm curious

The new album will be about The Simulation Hypothesis. I also wrote an album about this topic. Elon Musk also thinks it is more likely we live in a simulation.
