Wasted Theory Post “Bongronaut” Video; Touring Europe This Fall with Plainride

wasted theory

There’s a quick shot at 4:34 into the total 5:53 of Wasted Theory‘s new video of the Delaware Memorial Bridge. Probably not all that significant if you’re not from the region, but immediately recognizable if you are. It spans over the Delaware River and resides at what, from my perspective, has always been the bottom end of New Jersey; the spot I land when I know I’m driving south. For Wasted Theory — and I think they’re southbound (certainly in terms of sound, always), but I can’t be 100 percent sure — it’s probably a sign of home, based in the state of Delaware as they are. It’s the kind of thing that, if you were from someplace else, you might not give a second thought, but imagine being out on the road for a minute and getting back to your bridge and all the recognizable elements of your home surrounding it. I don’t know if that’s why the four-piece included it in the clip for “Bongronaut” — there look to be some sights from flying into Philly as well — but it works nonetheless.

The travel footage seems all the more relevant since Wasted Theory will head abroad for the first time this September, joining forces with Plainride for a 17-date European tour. They go supporting last year’s Warlords of the New Electric (review here), which came out through Italy’s Argonauta Records, and having had the fortune of seeing them just this past weekend in Maryland (review here), they seemed ready for it. Their stage presence was locked in, the material tight, and the volume delivered at full force. I don’t always get down with what they do thematically, but I wouldn’t argue with how much they put into the show. It’s an “all-out” kind of affair, and most of the video for “Bongronaut” centers around that, with live footage captured at various shows here and there. There’s even a shot of their enviably-neat merch table, just to complete the experience. Don’t miss it.

Cities and venues are still TBA for the tour, so when I see them come through I’ll get a post up. Enjoy the video in the meantime:
