The Motorleague Quiz Fans on Vintage Videogame Knowledge via New Video, Book Canadian Tour
Published Aug 20, 2013Anyone with an affinity for old videogames will want to check out Moncton punks the Motorleague's new clip for "Failsafes."
The video plays out like a very entertaining lyric video, as the words are incorporated into a montage of old-school computer games. We won't tell you which games are featured, however, since the band are testing fans on their gaming knowledge with a quiz on their website.
Watch the video at the bottom of this page, and take the quiz right here.
"Failsafes" comes from the Motorleague's recent Acknowledge, Acknowledge album, which the band will promote with Canadian shows in September and October. There are two separate legs, which are divided by a brief trip to Germany in late September. All of the Canadian shows are in the eastern half of the country, and there are also a few U.S. gigs.
