In 2009, Scatterheart released their debut full length album, ‘The Masterplan’ at a sold out show in Vancouver.

In advance of their sophomore album, the band has been releasing a song/music video every 6 weeks paired. The videos have been praised for their original concepts that often allow for audience interaction. The first video ‘Better Than Before’ used
groundbreaking web design to allow viewers to choose which of 9 characters they want to play as in a videogame style obstacle course. The following video for ‘Awesome Machine’ was created as a standard video with an additional interactive companion
where viewers used a flipbook interface to switch parts of the 3 band members around to create strange looking people. ‘I Get The Feeling, We’ve Hit The Ceiling’ has been a fan favorite with over 10,000 views in the first week. The video shows the band
performing underwater with their instruments and trademark suits. The band’s latest video, Tick Tock Tick, was released for 12/12/12 and was shot with 12 cameras in a circle creating the ‘bullet time’ style made popular by The Matrix movies.
