The Sounds Of The Universe electronic press kit was filmed on November 25, 2008, at Chung King Studios in New York City. About 10 minutes of footage from this EPK appears as a bonus on the deluxe edition of the album.

This is the full-length EPK, containing about 39 minutes of interviews with band members, and then 6 minutes and 15 seconds of B-Roll footage which is mostly without audio.

Aspect ratio has been adjusted to 16:9 in the MKV file for proper playback on the computer. If you're having trouble playing the file, VLC Media Player plays it without issue.
