Melbourne’s TOEHIDER have released a new video for THE HOARDER, the first single from their forthcoming album I HAVE LITTLE TO NO MEMORY OF THESE MEMORIES.

The first single The Hoarder is a Toehider extravaganza, with a rapid-fire narrative delivered by singer Mike Mills over a funky rock groove. The video, animated by acclaimed artists Eleanor Evans & Giovanni Aguilar, brings the story to life in full colour with a combination of comic book imagery and stop-motion graphics, based on the images and characters created by Toehider’s illustrator Andrew Saltmarsh. The single & video introduce the world created for the album by Mills & Saltmarsh.

The album itself is a modern rock opera – intended to be listened to as a full 47-minute journey following the characters of The Hoarder and Bralien as well as a third character who declined to be featured in the story.

Toehider - The Hoarder (official music video):

Mike Mills says of the record: "The 45 second song is quite prevalent now, instagram/tiktok social media microcontent and all that. I have a bug in my brain that purposely wanders toward something which is the opposite of what’s popular so I thought “Hey how about doing a 47 MINUTE long song?”

Toehider is a collaborative project between singer/multi-instrumentalist MIKE MILLS & graphic designer ANDREW SALTMARSH. I Have Little To No Memory Of These Memories is the 5th full length studio album and 22ndoverall release (after a series of 12 EPs in 12 months kickstarted the project a decade ago).

Since 2018, TOEHIDER have been running a successful Patreon subscription, generating hundreds of compositions and illustrations available to fans. Their Patreon was recently listed as one of Australia’s Top 10 most successful music subscriptions.

I Have Little To No Memory Of These Memories is out through Bird's Robe Records/ MGM on Friday September 9, 2022.
