The Chemical Brothers never shied away from trying wild new things, and they’re not going to start anytime soon. The music video for their new single “Eve of Destruction” is here, and it’s the most surreal thing you’ll see all day.
The duo’s longtime collaborators Adam Smith and Marcus Lyall were in charge of directing this video, reminiscent of Japanese sci-fi series Ultraman. “Eve of Destruction” gives us a look at several heroes and villains in colorful costumes, getting ready for action and facing off each other.
This song serves as the opening track on the duo’s latest album No Geography, which came out on April 12th to critical acclaim.
This isn’t the only record The Chemical Brothers are dropping this year since they’ve announced the plan to release a deluxe reissue of their signature album Surrender. “It’s been 20 years since Surrender and we’re putting out a big box set of that. We found lots of different versions of the tracks and it’s really interesting to listen to them now to see what we considered to be the finished version,” said Ed Simons while chatting with Stack Magazine.
