Short video: album cover shoot for "Here's How It Works"

Back in November, Joe Pabst graciously agreed to be the cover model for The Compulsion's forthcoming full-length record album, "Here's How It Works." So Ken Hanson—designer, photographer, bass player, Chief Dude Officer at Hanson Dodge Creative and all-around good human—put together a photo shoot to capture images for the cover and sleeve.

The short video below delivers not only a peek behind the curtain at the photo shoot, but also the first look at the cover for "Here's How It Works," which will be formally released at our Saturday, March 8th album release party at Shank Hall (with special guests the fabulous Testa Rosa). The video also features a snippet from the song "Boyhood Idol," which you'll find in the number eight position on HHIW.

We can't thank Ken and Joe enough for their contributions to the new album. Ken has been particularly amazing, handling art direction and design as well as all of the photography—not to mention creating a slew of great gig posters for the band. 

So thanks, Ken and Joe. 

More details on the album to follow soon...
