Klaxons have released the otherworldly video for their new single Echoes today through Polydor.

It’s the first single to be taken from their highly anticipated new album Surfing the Void, out August 23rd, and sees Klaxons braving the blistering heat of the Egyptian White Desert.

It’s been three years since Klaxons burst onto the music scene, injecting a much needed dose of rave hedonism into the indie tedium of the charts with the Mercury award-winning album Myths Of The Near Future.

Now they are back with the eagerly awaited follow up. Produced in LA by US rock legend Ross Robinson (Sepultura, Slipknot, At the Drive In, The Cure) and written over the course of a three year long musical journey, it’s a brilliantly diverse and engaging alternative rock record.

The track listing for Surfing the Void is:

The Same Space
Surfing The Void
Valley of The Calm Trees
Extra Astronomical
Twin Flames
Future Memories
