Of Montreal’s new video for False Priest single “Coquet Coquette” is simultaneously everything and nothing you’d expect from the long-running glam-poppers. By now, it’s accepted that an Of Montreal clip is going to be somewhat bizarre, but honestly, who saw this coming? In the Jason Miller directed video, the band engages in a bit of prehistoric warfare, complete with people ripping out throats with teeth, some maritime wrangling, a pale skinned individual maniacally humping a dead body and Kevin Barnes owning people left and right with a huge stick. Of course.
False Priest is due out on Sept. 14 via Polyvinyl. For all you collectors out there, the band will also be releasing 500 hand-numbered cassette copies of the new album through Indianapolis based label Joyful Noise Records.
