Fair to Midland's New Video: A Cartoon, Sure, But Not for the Kids. Trust Us. We Tried. Bad Idea.

Fair to Midland's album Fables from a Mayfly will be out next month; so all you looking to get yer art-prog-metal on, be on the lookout for these locals, who've been blessed by and then some by System of a Down's Serj Tankian, whose Universal Records imprint is releasing the disc. Till then, here's the trippy video for leadoff single "Dance of the Mantee." Just the title sounds, um, very art-prog-metal. Or just plain ridonklious. --Robert Wilonsky
