    Last year, Portishead associates BEAK> dropped a few new singles, “Sex Music” and “(Merry Xmas) Face the Future” and played a few summer dates with Arcade Fire. Now, the cheeky, Geoff Barrow-led outfit has released another new song, “Allé Sauvage”, which serves to tease the release of a new album this fall, their first LP since 2012’s >>

    This version of “Allé Sauvage”, viewable below, unfolds live at Invada Studios in collaboration with video artist John Minton, though the band promises a studio cut of the song will appear on the forthcoming LP. The trippy visuals make a fine pairing with the song, which coasts along eccentric beats and horror soundtrack synths. Maybe Barrow’s next score will veer even deeper into genre?

    After a few UK dates, BEAK> will embark on its first batch of North American dates in five years. The band will hit up Seattle, Chicago, New York City, and others. See its full itinerary below.
