Remember back in April 2007 Isaac mentioned in an interview that Heath Ledger wanted to make a music video for King Rat with the help of Terry Gilliam?

Well a lot of things have happened since then. Primarily the sad passing of Heath Ledger in January 2008 and secondly, no word from the band if it was even happening.

Last week Pitchfork ran an article recapping the story and stating that "The status of the "King Rat" video is currently unknown."

Spin ran a similar article the following day however, stating that "No specific date has been set for the release, which is expected to happen soon."

I didn't put much stock into this at first, figuring that the one was merely misquoting the other. But as of this morning www.modestmousemusic.com is now linking to the Spin article... does this mean there's a chance that the video will surface?

In other news, the early August release date for the new EP now appears to be August 4.
