Canada’s The Besnard Lakes released a brand new album, A Coliseum Complex Museum, back in January via Jagjaguwar. Now the band has shared a video for “Necronomicon.” The sci-fi clip features an object from space entering the atmosphere and beautiful vistas as the sphere flies above an alien planet. Nathaniel Larouche directed the video.

The Besnard Lakes’ co-founder Jace Lasek commented on the video in a press release: “Nathan has created something extremely special. It’s the video we’ve always wanted the band to have - it represents us perfectly. Watching it is nothing short of magnificent.”

Previously The Besnard Lakes shared A Coliseum Complex Museum tracks “Golden Lion” and “The Plain Moon,” as well as a video for “The Plain Moon.” A Coliseum Complex Museum is the follow-up to 2013’s fantastic Until in Excess, Imperceptible UFO, which received its share of critical acclaim but was still criminally underappreciated/under-heard in our opinion. The Besnard Lakes lineup is still anchored by founding members and husband and wife team Jace Lasek (guitars/vocals) and Olga Goreas (vocals/bass), along with long-term drummer Kevin Laing. For this album they are joined by Sheenah Ko (keys/vocals) and Robbie Macarthur (guitar). Previous guitarist Richard White still collaborates in the studio but no longer tours with the band.
