Foals have released their interactive, 360 degree video for 'Mountain At My Gates' filmed in association with GoPro. Watch the video below.

The third collaboration with videographer Nabil after 'Late Night' and 'Bad Habit', the Oxford five piece release their most innovative video to date.

The video was shot entirely using GoPro's spherical Virtual Reality technology. This marls te first use of VR technology on a music video production.

The video allows views to pan spherically to view the band from multiple perspectives. The band perform their new single in a middle of a dilapidated building structure surrounded by towering mountain ranges. As the song progresses, the whole scene swells with intensity as members of the band start multiplying in the peripheries of the shot, crows flock sinisterly and the looming mountains crumble to dust.

Speaking about this thematics of the new single, lead singer Yannis said: "At the beginning it had a baggy feel, but became less so with more work. The central image - 'I see a mountain at my gates' was from me getting more interested in seeing what would come out lyrically where there wasn’t a pre-conceived idea."

The band's new album What Went Down is out August 28th, but if you can't wait until then, check out how the new material sounded live when Foals tore the Radio 1 Live Lounge apart.
