Foals have shared a new video.

The animated clip accompanying Like Lightning was written and directed by the French animator Virginie Kypriotis and enourages fans to make a stand against climate change.

The video premiered on the website for Music Declares Emergency, an organisation set up by artists and music industry professionals to tackle the threat. Discussing it, Kypriotis said:

"After being angered by the world's greed, malice and ignorance regarding environmental issues, the story's hero simply decides to run away. The action makes him a kind of contemporary messiah who people turn to as they begin to change their ways.

"Although the film is about the environment, we wanted to create a new kind of message about it. Rather than just being pessimistic or even too sentimental, the idea was to use our anger to create something funny and hopeful to celebrate the people who are actually doing something about it."

The band put out 'Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost - Part 2' earlier this autumn and have since lined up shows at Edinburgh's Usher Hall, Blackpool's Empress Ballroom and Birmingham Arena next spring, with an open-air gig at Cardiff Castle set to follow on July 10.
