It's finally online and includes tanks, Alex and Miles singing in slow mo, some snow, a cathedral, an old lady, an ice skater, oh, and the actual song The Age Of The Understatement itself.

A big sound for a potentially huge album.

There is now an official video available on YouTube aswell. Just in case it wont play properly on the official website simply view the video using the player below!

Knights of Cydonia anyone?

It's blatantly not Knights of Cydonia =P (Knights of Cyndonia was a shit song >.>)
I'd say it's a direct cross between the two. There are some points in there where I was like "that's so Rascals" such as the intermittent guitar segments and the lashings of reverb...
Love it. Woot!

I wasn't saying it was Knights of Cydonia, you have to be an idiot to mistake the two.
It does sound a awful lot like it though with the the harmonic vocals and the whirring guitar.
