Today is the world debut of the new CLASS M PLANETS video for AWKWARD. This video was produced by GRILCH and is heart-wrenching and emotionally intelligent. It is a deep dive into awkward.
Please check out AWKWARD on the recent album, RAVENSWOOD.
We posted some new songs we have done during 2020-21. Just for fun and therapy ! Yes, keeping up with the Class M Planets dream has kept us busy during the past year. Here are two examples, they will be available later in a more official format with a bunch of others ! Hallelujah 🙂
Song 1: Constellations
Song 2: Diabolical
Here is the video for “Flat Earth” on the new Ravenswood album. Check it out but don’t be using heavy machinery while doing so!
Today, Psychedelic Baby Magazine is premiering the new video for “Yer Wings” which is the third track on the new record, Ravenswood.
“The idea behind the video was to shine a little spotlight on the individual personalities in the band and just have fun experimenting with arty images to contrast with the more candid stuff. With 75% of the band members being filmmakers, it was a great time for pooling all our cameras, lenses, lights, and ideas for sexy slo-mo shots of us drinking beer.” – David (bassist/filmmaker)
“The song was begun during the aftermath of a near-miss I had with a category 5 hurricane in Mexico. The storm died by the time it reached land but the combination of catastrophic fear and the joy of survival leaked their way into a new chord progression that became ‘Yer Wings’. The song is both intense and sweet, the way I see it. It’s clearly wrestling with something but it arrives at simple results. The song was meant to explore a large range of the emotional color palate and it then allowed us to continue doing so into the future. As time progresses, our original intentions evolve into something new. I think the Yer Wings video shows the friendship between the Class M Planets band members and emphasizes the human story behind this song.” -Adam (singer/wordsmith)
Ok so no record release events for April for reasons I’m sure you are aware of… We had a few events planned, an in-store, some other things here-and-there: all cancelled or postponed shall we say 🙁 .

We have just now written and recorded two songs for the Heron Project. Their collective, “…exists to encourage and promote the creative life.” We couldn’t agree more 🙂 They have put out a call to do creative interpretations of specific themes and Class M Planets has risen to the occasion ! Putting together an imaginative response in a short period of time is challenging and fulfilling.
The theme for February 2018 was, “Evergreen” and here is the song we put together for that…
The theme for March 2018 was, “Equal Nights” for the solstice and here is the song we put together for that…
check out the Heron Project !
