Manic Street Preachers have released a video for Complicated Illusions.

The immersive ballad appears on the trio's 14th studio album, 'The Ultra Vivid Lament', released in September, and is described by the group as, "the battle between chaos and calm with a gliding majestic lyrical flow – leaning towards More Than This era-Roxy - Bowie's Lodger - peak pop Echo and the Bunnymen." 

The clip, meanwhile, was created by filmmaker Kieran Evans, who added: "I've always felt the track feels like an epic soundtrack to an as yet made film so I've gone for a visual/lyric type affair using a similar aesthetic / approach to a lot of Netflix type title sequences using minimal / small type over multi-layered imagery."

The band will continue their current UK tour in Portsmouth tonight (October 8). They also play shows in Llandudno and London in December. Tickets are on sale now.
