With their industrially-charged new record Stop Mute Defeat hitting the shelves in just under a month, post-psych overlords White Hills have unveiled the brainmelting, surreal video for “Importance 101”.

The second in Stop Mute Defeat‘s series of videos created and directed by bassist Ego Sensation, “Importance 101” delves through the looking glass to depict a twisted nightmare world, where everything isn’t quite as unfamiliar as it first seems. Channeling the apocalyptic cynicism of visionary artists such asThrobbing Gristle, Derek Jarman and William Burroughs, Ego’s abstract visions heighten the shadows of the darkening West, a point that’s brought home with Dave W’s haunting incantation: “Chaos is the score to which we lose more and more / Don’t rely on counting sheep.” 

White Hills new album Stop Mute Defeat is out May 19th on Thrill Jockey Records. The band will mark the release with an extensive European tour, covering Germany, France, The Netherlands, The UK, Belgium Luxembourg, Denmark, Switzerland, Italy, Austria, Spain and Portugal. Full tour dates can be found above.
