Category: Trio of Madness

Directed by Emmy Award winner Eric Vitner of IdeaMachine Films, From Mad, Mad, Mad Minds is based on true events that occurred at a Trio of Madness concert where the band suffered a legendary fog machine malfunction. Presented in a surrealistic style, the video incorporates hypnotic visuals within a humorous framework involving the band, an anthropomorphic ear, an alien abduction scenario and an antagonistic sound engineer.

From Mad, Mad, Mad Minds continues Trio of Madness’ and L’N’L’s relationship with Eric’s IdeaMachine Films, having previously worked together on Trio’s The Drake Equation and A Halo Called Fred’s Turtles All The Way Down.

Eric explains, “Trio of Madness’s modern progressive rock music is so inspiring – there were so many ideas swirling in my head when I first heard the song – that making the video was just a matter of picking the best and making sure I do them justice with my camera and editing work. I hope everyone buys the album when it comes out.”

Trio of Madness is currently finishing up  their forthcoming new album, Lost Time, for a Summer 2015 release.
