The single will also include “Megafauna”, a previously unreleased song from The Orchard sessions, an alternate version of The Orchard favorite “Keep It Quiet” by one of the band’s many alter-egos, GOP, and the album version of “Too Dramatic”.

The band debuted the video for “Too Dramatic”, the second from Ra Ra Riot’s brilliant sophomore release The Orchard, two weeks ago on MTV. Directed by Andrew Thomas Huang (Avi Buffalo, Maximum Balloon, Delphic) the video features the band performing in an otherworldly terrain that blossoms and transforms into a vast, constantly shifting animated landscape.

Ra Ra Riot’s sophomore album The Orchard debuted at #36 on the Billboard Top 200 album chart. It was produced by Ra Ra Riot and Andrew Maury and mixed by Chris Walla (with the exception of “Do You Remember,” which was mixed by Rostam Batmanglij). Its August 24 release date marked two years, nearly to the day, since the release of the band’s debut album, The Rhumb Line, which debuted at #109 on the U.S. album chart and has gone on to sell in excess of 70,000 copies.
