New Jersey-based indie rock band Tokyo Rose collaborated with major motion picture director Steve C. Miller (Automaton Transfusion, Machine) on the video for their single “We Can Be Friends Tonight, But Tomorrow I’ll Be…” Filmed on Sunday, August 26th at Anaheim, CA’s hotbed for indie rock live shows, Chain Reaction, the concept video follows a flirtatious couple playing cat and mouse, prior to the band’s performance.
While listening to their latest album The Promise in Compromise on SideCho Records, the rising horror director was intrigued with the single. “I’m very excited to be on this video,” says Miller. “I loved the song and wanted to work with the guys in Tokyo Rose after hearing their new album.” Miller is best known for his indie zombie flick Automaton Transfusion and its upcoming sequel Automaton Transfusion: Contingency (due out in 2009). He is currently working on the upcoming MTV film, Machine (from the producers of X-Men and Transformers).
With The Promise in Compromise, Tokyo Rose has created an energetic, guitar-driven collection of songs that is undoubtedly their most upbeat and creative album to date. The catchy first single “We Can Be Best Friends Tonight But Tomorrow I’ll Be…” is a lighthearted take on sharing intimacy with female concertgoers only to hit the road a few hours later.
Supporting the July 31st release of The Promise in Compromise, these guys combed the East Coast, jumped on Warped Tour for two weeks to head West and are now preparing for a headlining tour this fall with Peachcake and The Actual.
