Miike Snow Announce North American Tour, Share 'Genghis Khan' Video
Miike Snow have released the James Bond-inspired music video for their recent single "Genghis Khan." The video is provides visuals for the latest single from the Swedish dance-pop trio's upcoming album iii. In addition to the video, the trio have announced the complete list of dates for their upcoming North American tour.
The video starts out with a very ominous situation as our villain stands over a man in a tuxedo tied to a metal table with a large red laser trained on his chest. The villain has a simple two button remote that controls the device - kill or release. However before he can eventually make up his mind the first time, the clock hits 5 p.m. and he has to leave work to head home to eat dinner with his beautiful wife and two kids.
Though the villain would appear to have everything under control, he can't seem to get the tuxedoed man shackled to the metal table out of his head. Unable to sleep, he heads back to his lab and makes the tough decision on whether or not to kill his enemy. After a few tense seconds he decides to release the man and they dance and sing the lyrics to "Genghis Khan" together throughout the building.
The hero then replaces the villain's wife at the dinner table and in his bed.
Watch the video below and pre-order iii, which will be released on March 4.
Right when the album comes out, Miike Snow will hit the road across North America.
