(Photo via It’s Alive! Media & Management) DEVO member Gerald V. Casale, a pioneer in the New Wave genre, has released a groundbreaking “4-Dimensional” music video for his track “Lounge: Pay U Back”. This release is part of his newly reissued The Invisible Man EP, which is available for purchase directly from GeraldVCasale.com.

Casale collaborated with 4D Fun Studios, the video employs an advanced volumetric capture system, creating a 360° virtual CG environment from reality, using 32 digital scanning cameras.

This version of “I’m Gonna Pay U Back” features a ‘Lounge’ style reinterpretation, marking Casale’s first collaboration with Foo Fighters’ new drummer Josh Freese. Steve Bartek, the lead guitarist of OingoBoingo, also joins this unique musical venture. The video showcases digital avatars of all three musicians in an alternate 4-Dimensional reality.

Initially released as an exclusive for Record Store Day, the first pressing of the EP quickly sold out. Now, fans can acquire the 12-inch crystal clear ‘invisible’ vinyl, which is offered with autograph options. Additionally, the EP is available on CD and cassette, marking Casale’s first in three decades. For a limited period, orders will include an exclusive 10 sticker set featuring a Glow-in-the-Dark replica of the front cover artwork by Tomo77.
