British psychedelic pop quartet Temples released their promising debut album, Sun Structures, back in 2014 and last month shared a new song, “Certainty.” Now the band have announced their sophomore album, Volcano, and shared a suitably psychedelic video for “Certainty.” Below is the video, followed by the album’s tracklist and cover art.

The band self-produced the album. Frontman James Bagshaw had this to say about the album in a press release: “If there’s a sense of scale. It was really just a result of implementing a load of things that we didn’t know about the first time around. We didn’t even have a subwoofer to listen back to things that we did on Sun Structures, so there was nothing below 50Hz on that record. We didn’t even know those frequencies were there!”

Alden Volney directed the video and had this to say about it in a press release: “This is based on a recurring dream I have been having since childhood about getting into a sea of plastic. So when the band approached me about doing something inspired by those JPOP videos that ooze quirkiness and eccentricity, I thought injecting the color palettes and aesthetics of Japan into this idea could be a good fit. It’s designed to feel like a fever dream you’d have after spending too much time in a Japanese dollar store.”
