A few weeks back, Protest The Hero premiered their new track "Clarity" with the above artwork. We assumed this was the art to their new album, Volition. Nope!
Turns out the band wants you to work a little harder to find the artwork. They launched a mini-site that will reveal more and more of the artwork based on how many people are viewing the site at once. According to the press release:
Playing off the night vision-equipped vultures featured in the artwork, each fan’s visibility is restricted to the immediate area surrounding their cursor, giving them limited access to the illustration. Each visitor’s viewfinder moves simultaneously amongst the others, forming a real-time flock of crowd-sourced clarity – fans must work together to expand their collective vision and reveal the artwork in its entirety.
Here's a little sample of what it looks like:
I just tried to hit the page once more and it seems to have crashed. Clearly, there are a lot of Protest The Hero fans out there. Try your luck at volition.protestthehero.ca.
Volition is out on October 29th via Razor & Tie. Order it here.
