Grammy-nominated group Run The Jewels have just unveiled an insane new video for “Call Ticketron,” a standout track from their breakthrough album Run The Jewels 3.
Directed by Brad and Brian Palmer of Surround, the clip depicts a sold out show at the Garden in NYC which goes awry when the audience mysteriously disappears. As the guys investigate, matters take an apocalyptic turn, and strangeness ensues. The clip harkens back to old sci-fi horror movies, while also giving a nod to King Kong (with giant spiders, of course).
The video arrives just after the final performances of the duo’s expansive 2017 touring itinerary, which spanned 106 shows across the US, Canada, the UK, Europe and beyond, including cataclysmic performances at a wide swath of major international music festivals (including Primavera, Lollapalooza, Glastonbury, Field Day, Made In America, Best Kept Secret, Pitchfork Paris, FYF, and many more), as well as a historic run of four consecutive sold out shows at New York’s Terminal 5.
Last week the group earned its first Run The Jewels Grammy nomination in the “Best Rap Song” category for the song “Chase Me”, their collaboration with Danger Mouse and Big Boi from the soundtrack to the movie Baby Driver, which scored a #1 box office debut in the US.
