Chad VanGaalen’s Peace On The Rise by Chad VanGaalen

David Knight - 24th May 2011

From the visionary mind and pen of Chad VanGaalen, singer-songwriter, illustrator and animator, comes the self-made video for Peace On The Rise, the first single from his just-released new album Diaper Island, on Sub Pop.

From the visionary mind and pen of Chad VanGaalen, singer-songwriter, illustrator and animator, comes the self-made video for Peace On The Rise, the first single from his just-released new album Diaper Island, on Sub Pop. Its everything you'd expect from this richly imaginative visual artist with a penchant for the bizarre. Space Indians visit a new alien world of diverse natural beauty - beautifully rendered in the trademark VanGaalen style - and some of the big issues are alluded to: destruction of the natural environment, sustainability, etc. But there's also a competition attached to the video, with cool prizes to be won. You can find out more about that <a href="http://diaper-island.com/" target="_blank">here</a>.... This arrives a couple of months after Chad's last mesmerizing animation - for Dinosaur Jr legend (and Sub Pop stablemate) J Mascis's <a href="" target="_blank">Not Enough</a>. And if after all that you still need more Chad in your life, you have to check out <a href="http://www.promonews.tv/2008/10/09/shown-at-bug-09-chad-van-gaalen%E2%80%99s-molten-light/" target="_blank">Molten Light</a>, an absolute mind-blower from a couple of years ago.
