After the briefest of teasers hinting that new music was on the way, English indie rockers Foals have just dropped their newest single “What Went Down” and its accompanying music video.

The video for the album’s lead single “What Went Down” is interesting, to say the least. Beware, it’s a little graphic: a couple people are in pretty dire life-threatening situations. Check it out below:
After the success of their 2013’s Holy Fire, Foals has got some big shoes to fill for their fourth album. What Went Down will be out August 28th.
