The HAARP Machine Posts "Pleiadian Keys" Video

Conspiracy theory focused act The HAARP Machine has signed to Sumerian Records and will be releasing debut full-length album, "Disclosure," on October 16th. In celebration of the release, The HAARP Machine has now posted a video clip for "Pleiadian Keys" online, which can be viewed below. For more details on the band, head over to Facebook.

Al Mu'min (guitars) states: “Our debut album is an amalgamation of many influences across the spectrum and lyrically addresses many of the socioeconomic and political issues in our society today. We hope it will open doors for listeners and broaden their musical horizons as well as spark an interest in areas that dictate our lives, but are swept under the rug to maintain the status quo and keep the populace aloof to the sick capitalist venture of the big money cartels.

"We feel very fortunate to be in this position and wish to use this opportunity to spread the word on social change via the application of the scientific method for the betterment of humankind. There IS an alternative to the un-sane society we live in and it is our duty to this planet and all its inhabitants to awaken the sleepers. We can no longer ignore the writings on the wall. The time for change is now.” More...
