British psychedelic pop quartet Temples released their promising debut album, Sun Structures, back in 2014 and are releasing their sophomore album, Volcano, on March 3 via Fat Possum. Previously the band shared the album's first single, "Certainty," as well as a video for the song and a remix of "Certainty" by Scottish band Franz Ferdinand. Then they shared another song from the album, "Strange or Be Forgotten," and now that song has a video. It features the band do a photo-shoot with various interesting looking people in an abandoned warehouse-type space. James Beale directed the clip, which you can watch below. The band has also announced some new May U.S. tour dates, which are also below.

A press release states that the "video deals with the importance of embracing all different sorts of expression - whether they be ordinary or extraordinary." Bassist Tom Walmsley has this to say about the video in the press release: "Art is always on trial, so we wanted to interrogate some of the finest performing artists around. Playing the role of society, despondent and disinterested, we try and capture the un-capturable - the human spirit."
