Steam Powered Giraffe album release
The musical automatons will debut their third studio full-length MK III with a release party. “It took maybe a year into working on this album before we came up with a name,” says Christopher “Bunny” Bennett. “It works great because it references a progressive build of technology, which fits perfectly in a band of singing robots. This was also Sam Luke’s first album with us as our new robot Hatchworth, so we wanted him to be front and center on the cover. He has this sort of glowing chest plate, which made for a good place to put our name and album title bursting out.”
