After a long hiatus, Tortoise is back with a new album, Beacons of Ancestorship. It is Tortoise's sixth album, and the band's first since 2004's It's All Around You.
Here is the new video for Tortoise's "Prepare Your Coffin", a track from the new album which is coming out June 23rd.
Directed by Andrew Paynter and JUICE. Pitchfork calls the video, "A beautiful black-and-white meditation on death by-way-of symmetry, architecture, and photography. Meanwhile, the song kills."
