Video: Midnight Juggernauts – Freefalling
Midnight Juggernauts celebrate their 10 year anniversary this year with an EP release for charity, and will play a special anniversary show on November 22nd for Melbourne Music Week.
Through ten years of music and monkey business, Midnight Juggernauts have long maintained their adventurous course through the music scene. Remaining steadfastly independent they’ve defiantly traversed these seas on their own terms. They have performed all corners of the globe from Russia to Columbia to China to Turkey, as well as festivals including Glastonbury, Exit, Coachella, Fuji Rock, Benicassim and countless others.
Recently separated across different countries and different projects, they banded back together on impulse to record a series of adventurous EPs. The first called Aerials, (out now via the band’s own label, Siberia Records) reflects the world from a vertical perspective above and below, explored in the music as well as accompanying video clip and live show production. Exuding a more electronic dancefloor spirit, the tailored shows of projections and installations are heightened audio visual experiences. An initial test flight was trialled at this years VIVID Festival at the Sydney Opera House, eventually evolving into its new incarnation for the upcoming Melbourne Music Week.
Motivated to eschew the traditional album release structure in favor of something more meaningful, they make the Aerials EP available immediately, in return for a donation to the Aboriginal Benefits Foundation, specifically for Healthcare, almost a third of Aboriginal people are dead before the age of 45. The band’s personal interest stems from strong cultural relationships fostered between family members and various outback indigenous communities over the decades. People may choose any amount they wish to donate of which 100% goes to the foundation.
