On 23 January 2009, Julien-K’s myspace page announced that on 17 February 2009 their debut single “Kick the Bass” (with the B-side “Dreamland”) would be released digitally, coinciding with the planned end of analog television in the U.S. The explicit video is of a sexual theme, including references to bondage and has a cannibalistic twist to it. The video is offered in two versions for different tastes, a clean version as well as an explicit one, with the clean version being released at a later date. As a teaser, the explicit version of the video was released exclusively on 10 February on playboy.com which also features a cameo appearance from Linkin Park’s vocalist Chester Bennington, his wife Talinda, and Julien-K’s Director of Activities Church. The site also offered a three-day trial to coincide with the release, though verification of age (18+) was needed.
