With the release of their anticipated self-titled third today, MGMT have premiered a brand new music video for their track “Cool Song No. 2.” Directed by Isaiah Seret, the visual stars Michael Kenneth Williams (best known for his legendary role as Omar on The Wire, and currently as Chalky White on Boardwalk Empire) as The Plant Hunter, a man who muscles his way to become a kingpin in a world where genetically engineered plants are converted into euphoria-inducing drugs. The video also stars Henry Hopper as Tree, The Plant Hunter’s lover, who has unfortunately been mutated by the drug and is undergoing the final stage of a strange physical transformation.

In addition to the new music video, MGMT have announced plans for a new North American tour. Scroll down below the video to view the full list of performances, and bring up the latest copy of Under of the Radar with the band on the cover, on newsstands now.
