Mount Kimbie share details of their fourth studio album The Sunset Violent. To coincide with the announcement, the band have also released the brand new single, "Fishbrain".

Inspired by the charcoal animations of South African artist William Kentridge, the accompanying video directed by Tegen Williams – who the band worked with previously on the video for "Blue Train Lanes (feat. King Krule) – centres around a dystopian tale of an underground fish-scale textile factory and the mundane repetitive nature of the toil of everyday life and the labour of industry.

The Sunset Violent picks up where Mount Kimbie’s last studio album, 2017’s Love What Survives left off, and was written in California’s Yucca Valley, a scant Western town with a history of alleged UFO sightings before being finished in London.

In celebration of the album's release, Mount Kimbie are set to embark on a headline world tour, performing across Berlin, Amsterdam, Paris, before heading to the UK for shows in London, Manchester, Glasgow. They will then head to North America for a run of shows in Los Angeles, Denver, Austin, Chicago, and New York.
