Wasted Shirt, the collaborative project of Ty Segall and Lightning Bolt’s Brian Chippendale, will release their debut album, Fungus II, February 28th via Famous Class Records. Leading into the album’s release, the duo present its second single, “All is Lost,” and an accompanying video. Following lead single “Double the Dream,” the album opener “All is Lost” is heavy and caustic. Both Segall (guitar, bass) and Chippendale (drums) sing on the track, offering fuzzy, scrappy vocals and screams. Its accompanying video, directed by Adam Davies and animated by Davies, Leili Tavallaei, and Nick McKernan, uses MRIs from humans, animals, and fruit on top of trippy claymation.
“Like it’s a melty, hot mosh pit, we wanted to crawl inside the wave of energy Ty and Brian create,” says director Adam Davies. “We boiled and mixed clay, sliced it up and photographed the slices in sequence to match the dudes’ energy. Then while the breakdown pummels you, we blast you in the face with MRIs of humans, animals and fruit to make you go inside out to the beat.”
