MAGNET Exclusive: Premiere Of Whiskerman’s “Be Real” Video

Today is the day for Whiskerman’s fascinating fourth full-length. The prolific Oakland quintet has self-released the grand Kingdom Illusion, a psychedelic spin with all the right artsy accoutrements. If the eight-track LP doesn’t blow your mind by itself, we have a little (well, a lot of) something extra to finish the job: an epic, seven-minute video for album centerpiece “Be Real.”

“‘Be Real’ is a rock ‘n’ roll odyssey,” says Whiskerman frontman Graham Patzner. “A sacred jester drags a priest out from a church to take him on a psychedelic journey, revealing to him his hypocrisy and lack of separation to the rest of this world of clowns.”

We’re proud to premiere the Alexa Melo-directed video for “Be Real” today on magnetmagazine.com. Check it out now. Yes, kids, this is your brain on drugs.
