I thought this video was pretty damn cool (as was the touring documentary video). I have one rant to get off my chest and I hope the producer of the video doesn't take it personally - it's super hard to learn anything (especially audio) until they're shown what to listen for. If you didn't produce the video and/or don't care about audio-for-video, you can skip the rant.

Rant on:

Careful with the reverb on the the voiceovers. It was hard to pay attention to the voiceovers until I consciously tuned out the reverb. Keep the reverb if you like/need it but mix in less of it. You want it to give you a sense of the space the actual people are in but you don't want to hear it that much.

Bring the reverb mix up to where you just start to hear it, then dial it back a bit so it's not so obvious - you want it to sound like you're sitting in the room talking to them. If you were in a room talking to someone, your ears would rarely hear that much obvious reverb (unless the specific room you were in was absolutely empty, bare, and had really hard walls).

High frequencies in the reverb sound (all those "s" sounds in the reverb) are the first clue to an unnatural reverb - tame those things with a little eq (or the "low pass" filter on the reverb unit).

Rant off.

Other than that, this is awesome and Will Yip looks like a good match for the band. I'm getting more and more excited for the new record based on everything I've seen (and heard) and I'm looking forward to the next stuff I see from these guys (the band and the video producer).

Yeah, that happened to me too. The video is on Title Fight's Youtube, so you can watch it there.

Stoked for this album. Can't wait for my pre-order/birthday present to come in.
