Failure, who recently shared news of their plan to release a trio of digital EPs culminating in a full-length, physical album later this year, debut the video for “Dark Speed.”

“David Dastmalchian is one of our favorite actors so it was a true pleasure to make the first Failure video without the band in it with him,” explained Ken Andrews, who directed the video. Dastmalchian is known for his work in “Ant-Man” and “Blade Runner 2049.”

“Dark Speed” is one of the four songs from the In The Future EP, which is available today. Special offerings and bundles are available at, with subscriptions for the full series of releases available via The EP was produced by Failure and mixed by Ken Andrews.

The band’s fourth album, The Heart Is A Monster, arrived in June 2015. The 18-track collection was hailed by fans and critics alike for “brilliantly picking up from where Fantastic Planet left off” (Rolling Stone) and serving as “a stark reminder of why the band have been so influential but it also underscores their status as modern trailblazers” (Alternative Press). Pitchfork dubbed it “a thrilling ride” while Entertainment Weekly described the album as “a jaw-dropping slab of throbbing, fuzzy, visceral space rock.”
