On Thursday, the band released a new animated video for their song “Retrograde”, featured on their recent album Gigaton.

The video, directed by Josh Wakely, opens with a traveller driving through the rain to a strip mall.

“Visiting a psychic, the protagonist witnesses the destruction of the world in a crystal ball as the seas overtake the Eiffel Tower in Paris, London Bridge in London, and the group’s native Seattle,” the description reads.
