Corridor Announce New Album 'Junior'
Watch the intricately animated music video for "Topographe"
Published Aug 28, 2019Montreal's Corridor have shared plans to release a new full-length album titled Junior. It's set to arrive October 18 as the band's debut with Bonsound/Sub Pop.
Today, the band have also shared a music video for the album's first track "Topographe." The video is something right out of a Monty Python skit, with faceless beings churning around in a psychedelic fortress. The video is the fruit of the directorial efforts of the band's own Jonathan Robert.
On making the video for "Topographe," he had this to say:
While I've explored and mixed many different techniques in my past music videos, it's the first time that I took the process this far, blending all of them together in one place. It's a melting pot of stop motion, green screen, illustration, animation, collage, and live video. It's the visual equivalent of the progression of the song, a simple idea that takes amplitude through repetition.

Junior is Corridor's third full-length album, but their debut with Sub Pop. The band are no strangers to each other either. Robert and Dominic Berthiaume have been playing together since they were 14 years old.
On Junior, Corridor have compiled one of their most compact work yet — the album's run time is only 39 minutes spanning over 10 tracks. View the tracklisting below.
Corridor have also extended their current international tour in support of the new album. They'll be making stops in Toronto, Montreal, Quebec City and Vancouver, as well as many cities in the U.S. and Europe toward the end of the year. See the full schedule below.
