It's still a mystery what Kevin Parker and Co. are up to next.
Tame Impala have shared a new teaser video for a mock pharmaceutical drug called 'Rushium'.
The parody features Kevin Parker wandering the desert in psychedelic visuals and creating this new medicine while the band's track 'Posthumous Forgiveness' plays.
It closes with a caption of "Phase 1 Clinical Trials Begin 09/2021", hinting at potentially some new Tame Impala later in the year.
A fake website for the brand "Aionwell", which makes the drug in the teaser, has also been set up.
It describes the company in its About Us section as "a privately held Australian biopharmaceutical company focused on the development of recombinant stabilization and expansion of cellular space regrowth."
"Aionwell's mission is to offer unbounded time for all, the companies' core values of time extension and experiential memory solutions stem from an awareness of the human desire to always be."
Decide for yourself what Tame Impala are planning by watching 'Rushium' below:
Meanwhile, Tame Impala were recently announced as one of the headliners for Primavera Sound 2022. As well as the Australian band, many Irish acts were announced for the upcoming Spanish festival, including Fontaines D.C. and CMAT.
Unsurprisingly due to the demand, the festival has already sold out, one year before it goes ahead.
