Prince Rama prep for apocalypse by going on US tour, showing their new film

The end of the world didn’t happen last year and it didn’t happen the last time anyone thought the end of the world. Shame, as Prince Rama had created a nice little soundtrack for the apocalypse in the form of last year’s Top Ten Hits of the End of the World on Paw Tracks. Seeing how the world didn’t end, the band has been forced into a plan B. Specifically, that plan B is to create the world’s first Now Age psych-opera in the form of a film called Never Forever. The band’s press release describes the film as a “a free-form journey through dimensions both surreal and virtual” which includes the “glamorous, twisted world of a post-apocalyptic gym queen” and the “nightmarish breakdown of a VR robot turned pop star.” All that sounds cool, but that’s also basically how I describe Fast and Furious 6.

Never Forever recently premiered at New York City’s MoMa PS1 Dome 2. While a solid plan, Prince Rama did realize that more people could see the film if they also brought it to other cities. With that realization, they’re taking the film on tour with them, supplementing their live show with a screening of the movie. Most of their upcoming dates feature the film, though not all do, because, look, dad, you just can’t show a movie anywhere. No refunds will be given for dates canceled on account of apocalypse. There will be no one to give refunds and there will be no one to accept them.
