NY Prog Ensemble Jolly Release New Homemade Video 'Lucky'
Los Angeles, CA - Created by the band themselves with only a cardboard box, construction paper and a toy robot, ‘Lucky’ is the fourth video from the album ‘The Audio Guide To Happiness ll’ on InsideOut Music. The video features a stealth-guest appearance by famed drummer Mike Portnoy, who subsequently drives a puppy nursery van, whilst sporting his blue beard.
The video can be viewed here: http://youtu.be/Tw0B1DbPIic
Jolly has been direct support for a few of Portnoy’s bands which include Winery Dogs, Flying Colors and will join also the cast of the first annual 2014 Progressive Nation at Sea Cruise powered by InsideOut Music. (www.progressivenationatsea.com)
The band is currently on tour in the USA with Scale The Summit & Reign of Kindo, but that didn’t stop them from finishing and releasing this one of a kind, other worldly, cartoonish 3 ½ minute piece of joy.
Jolly had this to say about the video: “JOLLY took time out of their busy schedule to do some arts and crafts to make their latest animated video for "Lucky." They made the most we could out of cardboard, hot glue, and computer software. JOLLY loves you.”
Based in New York City, Jolly is a quartet who’s soul purpose for the past 3 years was to release their magnum opus concept album ‘The Audio Guide To Happiness’, which is broken up into 2 releases. Starting their career with presumably their most ambitious work and setting the tone for things to come.
Jolly plan on putting aside some time to write and record during the winter and will be releasing new material in 2014, with plans to do a short European tour around their performance at ProgPower 2014 in the Netherlands.
