NEWS: VIDEO: The Junction's post-apocalyptic "Futurists"

Like a scene fit for Cormac McCarthy's "The Road" or a Led Zeppelin album cover, The Junction explore the mysterious and post-apocalyptic landscape of the Salton Sea for their latest video "Futurists".

Fifty miles outside Palm Springs, the Salton Sea proved to be the perfect environment for director Davin Black to shoot "Futurists". Once a bustling 1950's paradise, all that is left is the skeletal remains of vacation homes, the stench of dead fish and a long forgotten spaceage tourist attraction.

While searching for Bombay Beach - a spot hit worst by the unpredictable flooding that plagued the Salton Sea - the guys encountered a "friendly" local who offered directions but warned "people don't want you around there, they're gonna follow you around 'til you leave..." They shot what they needed and got out.

The Junction are on tour this spring in support of their recently released third full-length album Grievances.
