It's all happening in The Cat Empire camp at the moment. 

Not only are the veteran band prepping for the release of their upcoming sixth full-length, Rising With The Sun, next month, and getting in the zone for an extensive national tour at the same time, but they've now unveiled a new video clip for recent single Bulls to help tide their fans over until they're back in our lives proper.

Frontman Felix Riebl recently explained that the inspiration for the song came to him in a dream, so it's fitting that its accompanying clip maintains a markedly fantastical approach, depicting the stalwart outfit doing their thing at what blossoms into a multi-coloured dance party in the desert that culminates in a flare-lit explosion of joy and fireworks.

There's an endemic sense of freedom that underpins the video, which was filmed at Riebl's family farm in the victorian countryside. The entire set-up conveys an appropriately energetic and enjoyable atmosphere all-too-well-known to anyone who's seen the band in action over the years, and it's a true delight to see that, even six albums in, they're still finding as much ebullience in their work as ever.

Said Riebl of the clip: "It meant a lot to me to film the clip at my family farm. I hadn't been up there for a long time. I spent a few days in advance of the shoot working with the crew to set up, build things and spend time with my family, who were holidaying up there at the time. It was a great experience, and I hope that comes through in the final clip."

The Cat Empire's Rising With The Sun is out on 4 March (pre-orders available now), the same day they kick off their impending live run at Fremantle Arts Centre, WA.
