It’s a busy time for Alt J . The English indie-rock group have their forthcoming third album, Relaxer, To be released on June 2nd. They’ve got a US tour and then some european and UK dates on the books that will take them across the U.S., Canada and Europe. And they’ve spun off two singles, including “In Cold Blood” which they recently performed on Jimmy Kimmel and just dropped a violent, cinematic video for this new single.

The video features narration from Iggy Pop, and might be the darkest and most violent thing featuring a mouse maybe ever . It’s not entirely clear what kind of deal has gone wrong in the clip, but there are plenty of dead and dying people that the leading mouse is trying its best to avoid. Whatever the case, the wood mouse is one resilient little critter.

The band said of their new visual in a statement:

We love working with great directors, giving them the creative freedom to interpret our tracks as they wish. It leads to great collaborations, like this new video for In Cold Blood from Casper Balslev. As you are about to find out, a day in the life of a wood mouse can be unexpectedly dangerous .
