News only just broke that Pixies will release a full album on April 19. Now, Indie Cindy — the first LP from the alternative-rock giants in 23 years — has spawned a music video. Experienced above, "Snakes" features crushing drums, angular guitar shards, breathy ahs, and Black Francis' calm but menacing voice: "Snakes are coming to your town / In tunnels underground..."

But despite the desert locale of the Mark Locke-directed clip above, this is no Tremors remake. In fact, the story told in the visual winds up being far more strange, as a band's worth of papier-mâché-masked people gather duffle bags and head out on the lam. Bonus points for that sweater caught mid-air, which can't not be an homage to Breaking Bad. "Snakes" also appears on EP-3.
