Subscribe to on

Experimental hip-hop outfit Shabazz Palaces have posted their apocalyptic new video for ‘#Cake.’

The song comes from the Seattle-based group’s sophomore effort, ‘Lese Majesty,’ released last month by Sub Pop. The surreal video (above) was directed by Hiro Murai, who has also helmed clips by the Shins, Queens of the Stone Age, St. Vincent, Childish Gambino and Spoon‘s recent video for ‘Do You,’ which you can watch below.

Shabazz Palaces are currently on the road and will be playing New York City’s Afropunk Festival this weekend (Aug. 23). They are touring the rest of the states through mid-October, and after that, they set their sights on conquering Europe. Get their full schedule here.

And for those interested, ‘Lese Majesty’ is available on CD and digital formats as well as a double-LP vinyl edition. Get all the details here.
