Las Vegas trio Palaye Royale have revealed details of their forthcoming fourth album, Fever Dream, and shared the video for the album's title track.

In a joint statement addressing the new album, the band - brothers Remington Leith, Sebastian Danzig, and Emerson Barrett - say, "Making this record felt like getting back to when we first fell in love with music. This record is very much about self-belief and self-empowerment, and overcoming all the obstacles that life throws at you. It’s the first time we’ve really taken a hopeful approach in our music." 

Featuring an array of circus/carnival folk, from snake charmers to jugglers and contortionists, the video for Fever Dream riffs on the song's surrealist lyrics, which features lines such as "Close your eyes and exit life tonight / You’ll be just fine, you’ll be alright... Take my hand to Neverland, you’ll see / We can be free, we can be anything..."
