Following the release of their new album Innocence Reaches last month, of Montreal are back today to share a new video for album highlight “let’s relate”.

Speaking about the video’s inspiration, of Montreal’s Kevin Barnes says, “In a concupiscent spirit-rebellion against the discriminatory policies being championed by Right Wing / Christian Wrong politicians against the LGBTQ community as of late, we present an altogether inclusive and decidedly love-addled message to the world, Let’s not hate! LET’S RELATE!”

The video’s release comes as the band prepares to launch their US tour tomorrow, which launches in their hometown of Athens, GA.
