Bleed With Who? 

Thanks for featuring the release of our brand new music video! Click here to check out the feature! 

"Project213 is an explosion of ideas. Thriving in a laboratory of instruments and embedded in a collection of odd circumstances, Jared Hallock’s eclectic approach to self-expression cascades his musical perspectives over punk and rock sensibilities. 

Last year's releases “Naughty Jenny” and “Shit’s so Cool” have solidified the group's multifarious approach, and “Bleed With Who?” further enhances their slightly-psychedelic perspectives. “Bleed With Who?” is a song about the death of your ego; a song about finally realizing that you are a pretty butterfly. 

Riding high on the momentum from last year's video release of “Naughty Jenny”, Project213 takes a bit of an artistic left turn and lands somewhere in between the minds of Andy Warhol and Jackson Pollock. Their new music video for “Bleed With Who?” offers a visual and aural exploration of metamorphosis via blooming butterfly imagery juxtaposed over crunchy guitars, and pounding drums. 

Rather than a traditional narrative, the visuals for “Bleed with Who?” offer a moment in time when the subject of the song is busy decomposing into beautiful butterflies. A whole onslaught of these metaphors make their way from a shattered head and ride the breeze, rhythmically pulsing with life, onward. The story of both the video and the song is found in the direction of their flight, most whipped away on a breeze, with a few breaking away and forging a new path."

Thanks homies, oh and a special thanks to Ryan Donahue for the incredible artwork and digital design.

P.S. - Here is a lyric video if you prefer actually knowing the lyrics:).

Film Festivals! 

It looks like Naughty Jenny is hitting the film festival circuit! I have always loved participating in film festivals and it is kind of the Colossal Cinematic Showcase to get the party started for Project213 this year. This particular showcase will be filled with a bunch of old friends and I look forward to spending the time with them, even if I have to wear a colossally cinematic facemask. Oh and speaking of festivals, I realized that I never expressed my gratitude to the Blow-up International Arthouse Festival for last year's inclusion of our experimental film, Nocturne ((psychosis)). Chicago plays a great host to the arthouse film community and it was an honor to be included. Check out the laurels to both festivals below, and I'll see ya at the movies.








Naughty Jenny! 

This is the month! We release Naughty Jenny, set her free and let her live in her own world amongst all the great bands and music videos out there! We have enjoyed sharing some of this process with you and can't wait to continue to share all future projects! many things are already in the works but in the meantime here is some "behind the scenes" footage to help keep focussed on the task at hand:).


Video Shoot 

Well I am finally catching up on sleep after an exhaustive video shoot for the upcoming P213 release of Naughty Jenny. It has been so much fun working on every aspect of this song. The learning experiences have been plentiful - from inspiration and creation all the way to the music video and marketing. It is surprising how far the project has come and still a bit daunting the amount of work that is left. I'll be sharing a ton of behind the scenes action here and all over the various social sites...and we have so much I think I will be able to keep each site fresh with content! 

Now that the music video is filmed, we are exhaustively working our way through editing and file preparation. I absolutely can not wait to share the final product!
