!!! (pronounced Chk Chk Chk) are releasing a new album, Shake the Shudder, on May 19 via Warp. Previously the band shared a video for its first single, "The One 2." Now they have shared another song from the album, "Dancing Is the Best Revenge," via its video. The fun clip features frontman Nic Offer singing and dancing along to the song with some fantastic drag queens. Watch it below, followed by the band's upcoming tour dates.

Offer had this to say about the video in a press release: "When we recorded 'Dancing Is the Best Revenge' I pitched up my voice, becoming Nicole Fayu in the studio - much like Prince became Camille and Morrissey became Ann Coates. The groove felt like a strut or walk and I imagined it akin to drag or ballroom culture. After 'The One 2' video featured such strong dance performances, and was filmed in the historic LA venue Jalisco, we decided to give the song to some girls who could really walk the walk and perform the song as in the spirit of reinvention. We traded some outfits and makeup tips and they helped me become IRL Nicole Fayu. Dancing with them was a blast, and it was great to finally see the song walked. I have to admit, I'm not used to being out performed in a video. These ladies ignore a world that tells them who they should be - they take the stage, walking as whoever they want to be, and that's their best revenge. Maybe you'll never put on heels, maybe you'll never walk onstage, maybe you'll never be anyone else, but maybe this song/vid/story inspires you to try something you haven't before."

Shake the Shudder is the follow-up to 2015's As If. Patrick Ford produced the album at Taaffe Palace, which was mixed by "dance luminaries" Phil Moffa, Joakim, and Matt Wiggins. The album features various guest vocalists: Lea Lea, Meah Pace, Nicole Fayu, Cameron Mesirow, and Molly Schnick. Lea Lea sings on "The One 2."
