"Chaos Space Marine" is the group's first outing since releasing their alternate version of "Track X (The Guest)" in May, and is also the first single from their upcoming second album.

Frontman Isaac Wood says the new single is "the best song we’ve ever written", and adds, "We threw in every idea anyone had with that song, so the making of it was a really fast, whimsical approach - like throwing all the shit at the wall and just letting everything stick."

Ants From Up There will follow the group's Mercury Prize-nominated debut album For the first time, which landed in February this year. The new album was recorded at Chale Abbey Studios, Isle Of Wight, throughout summer with live engineer Sergio Maschetzko.

Tyler Hyde says of the album, "We were just so hyped the whole time. It was such a pleasure to make. I've kind of accepted that this might be the best thing that I'm ever part of for the rest of my life. And that's fine."
