On Thursday, April 13, alt-J released a visually striking new video for the song "3WW," which comes from the band's forthcoming album, Relaxer, scheduled for release on June 2, 2017.

The video for "3WW" was directed by Young Replicant. Shot on location in the village of Real de Catorce in the central Mexican state of San Luis Potosí, the video takes place in an unspecified time period, and its story centers on the death of a young woman and the subsequent mourning.

On the day of the video's release, alt-J also announced a North American tour that begins July 27, 2017, in Columbia, Md., and continues until mid-November. The tour makes a stop at the Roy Wilkins Auditorium in St. Paul on Oct. 20.
