THE TONY DANZA TAPDANCE EXTRAVAGANZA UNVEIL THEIR ALBUM ART NORMA JEAN-STYLE
I was kinda ticked last month when Norma Jean unveiled the album art for their latest, Meridional, via a teaser video, ’cause it denied us the pleasure of actually getting a good look at said art. Now The Tony Danza Tapdance Extravaganza have done the same thing for the Michael Windsor-designed cover of Danza III: The Series of Unfortunate Events. And while I hope this doesn’t become a trend – I’ve seen Windsor’s entire piece, and it’s pretty cool – I’ll forgive TTDTE, because, well, I’ve heard Danza III, and it’s absolutely punishing. It is, as Vince observed during a recent listening session, somewhat less mathcore-ish than Danza II and somewhat more of what I guess you’d call, for complete lack of a better term, “good deathcore” – e.g., The Red Chord. But whatever box you wanna try and shove it into (“Heh-heh, he said ‘box you wanna shove it into!’”), it’s really just a damn fine piece of work.
The song in this video is called “The Union,” by the way.
Noisecreep debuted this clip, and if you head on over there, there’s a brief statement from Danza vocalist Jessie Freeland explaining the general idea behind the art.
Danza III comes out July 6 on Black Market Activities.
