Planets is an EP by Australian pop punk band Short Stack, released on 24 September 2010.[1] To coincide with the release of Planets, Short Stack performed the song live at Federation Square in Melbourne. The event was televised live on Sunrise.[2] The single, "Planets", debuted at #4 on the ARIA Charts.[3] The EP is a pre-release to their second album This Is Bat Country. The three bonus songs which come on the Planets EP are not included on the album. These three bonus songs are: "I Will, I Will, I Will", "Electric Romantics", and "In My Hands".

"Planets" was certified Platinum due to the number of copies sold.

Music video[edit]

The music video for "Planets" was spread between two songs, "Planets" and "We Dance to a Different Disco, Honey" such as in My Chemical Romance's songs "Na Na Na (Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na)" and "Sing", and features the band in a fancy club with people wearing masks, and the members taking the masks off to reveal their identity, also with scenes of a lady torturing another lady by licking her. At the end of the video the lady being tortured reveals that something is hidden at the place that the band is at. Guitarist/Vocalist Shaun Diviney eventually takes off a statue's mask, revealing a white lady with no mouth. Security guards then block Diviney and the lady's path and captures them. The story is then continued in "We Dance to a Different Disco, Honey". There are also scenes of Short Stack playing a in a large room with flashing purple lights.
