Fresh off the release of their new album, After the Disco (Columbia), Broken Bells have unveiled a new lyric video for the track “Leave It Alone.” But this is no mere lyric video. The visuals incorporate stark surroundings and Broken Bells’ signature pink aesthetic as geometric shapes combine to form beautiful shapes and body parts. The video is now viewable here:

Upon yesterday’s release, After the Disco rocketed up the iTunes charts landing squarely at #1. For those who have yet to join the fun, the album is available here: Additionally, Broken Bells are making quite the splash on the airwaves as they approach Top 5 at AAA and Top 15 at Alternative.

Broken Bells fans in New York City may have been seeing flashes of pink yesterday. The intergalactic heroine from the band’s featurette, “After the Disco,” popped up at various locations throughout NYC including Chelsea Market and Grand Central Station. It was awfully nice of her to stop by Earth to celebrate Brian Burton and James Mercer’s big release day.

To round out what has been a busy week for Burton and Mercer, the duo will embark on a West Coast tour which includes a stop at Washington’s Sasquatch! Music Festival over Independence Day weekend. During this tour, $1 from every ticket sold will be donated to the B612 Foundation. B612 is currently developing its Sentinel Mission which will seek to “discover and catalog 90 percent of the asteroids larger than 140 meters in Earth’s region of the solar system.” By conducting the Sentinel Mission, B612 hopes to provide protection and asteroid detection for Earth while helping pave the way for future space exploration.
