Alt-J released their third album, Relaxer, last month via Canvasback Music. Now they have shared a video for “Deadcrush.” Young Replicant directed the video, which was choreographed by Darcy Wallace. It features three dancers in some sort of post-apocalyptic urban world. Watch it below, followed by the band’s upcoming North American tour dates.

The band issued this statement about the video: “We are *very* proud to present the video for our new single Deadcrush, a collaboration between choreographer Darcy Wallace and director/dream weaver Young Replicant. Lee Miller, Anne Boleyn and Sylvia Plath - our three deadcrushes - are conjured up by a supercomputer in a post-apocalyptic world. ENJOY.”

Previously they shared “3WW,” which featured the vocals of Ellie Rowsell of Wolf Alice, as well as a video for “3WW,” and “In Cold Blood,” which sounded like something that could have easily been found on the band’s Mercury Prize-winning debut album from 2012, An Awesome Wave, as well as a video for “In Cold Blood.” They have also launched a web game on their website, stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to perform “In Cold Blood” with The Roots, and shared “Adeline.”
