Several bands have made innovative videos with an eye to online success in recent years, and several have livestreamed gigs or performances. Now Death Cab For Cutie has done both at once for new single You Are A Tourist. The band shot a scripted, one-take video and livestreamed it to fans last night, in advance of the single’s release through Atlantic Records. “Ten years ago if we wanted to attempt something like this we would have had to have the support and involvement of broadcast television network, which a band of our size and caliber would have been very hard-pressed to get,” says bassist Nick Harmer. “But these days, new technology and access to that new technology has opened all kinds of avenues of exploration for us when creating and distributing everything — including making music videos.” Source: Mashable
