Toronto's buzzy Volcano Playground have renamed themselves Program, and have offered PopMatters readers an exclusive look at the brand new (amazing) video for their lead single "Waiting".

Toronto indie band Volcano Playground has been busy. They’ve renamed themselves Program and hired celebrated producer David Newfeld (Broken Social Scene, Super Furry Animals) to turn the dials on a soon-to-be-released record. The results are pretty exciting. In Newfeld’s own words, “This is what Echo and the Bunnyman or Simple Minds wish they could’ve been generating 25 years ago, let alone in 2012.”

PopMatters readers can enjoy an exclusive look at the gorgeous video for “Waiting”, the lead single from the forthcoming album, below. Let us know what you think in the comments section.
