BEN FOLDS FIVE GOES FRAGGLE ROCK IN NEW VIDEO FOR
"DO IT ANYWAY" FROM THE NERDIST CHANNEL
Groundbreaking alternative rock innovators Ben Folds Five have reunited and today, the Nerdist Channel exclusively premiered the video for "Do It Anyway," the first track from the band's much anticipated album The Sound Of The Life Of The Mind (ImaVeePee Records/Sony Music) due out September 18.
A production of Nerdist Industries, the video features the Fraggles, stars of The Jim Henson Company's perennial fan-favorite "Fraggle Rock." Ben Folds, along with returning band mates Robert Sledge and Darren Jessee, are joined by Gobo, Mokey, Wembley, Boober, Red and Uncle Traveling Matt. Also making cameo appearances are Academy Award-nominated actress Anna Kendrick ("Up in the Air"), comedian Rob Corddry ("Children's Hospital") and Nerdist Industries' Founder and Chief Creative Officer Chris Hardwick.
Red Fraggle said, "We had a great adventure in Outer Space! Ben, Robert and Darren love music as much as Fraggles do, so we had lots of fun. It would be wonderful to have them come play more music in the caves with us, but I am not sure they can fit through the hole in the floor!"
