Queens of the Stone Age have unveiled the video for their song "Smooth Sailing," NME reports.

Click below to watch the video, directed by Hiro Murai (Childish Gambino, St. Vincent), in which the band's frontman Josh Homme goes on a drunken, druggy rampage with a group of businessmen in Los Angeles which ends up in disaster. Homme also sings the "...Like Clockwork" song at karaoke in the video.

Queens of the Stone Age will headline this summer's Reading and Leeds Festivals. Homme has also recently said that his band will record the follow-up to 2013's "...Like Clockwork" later this year, adding that they have "more than enough songs" for a new LP.

Asked by Rolling Stone if they'd be recording another album soon, Homme commented: "Absolutely. We have more than enough songs. We're booked 'til September, but after that we plan to jump in the studio and get going."

    who else just wants to move when they hear this song. Can't control myself that beat is just so effective
    Would have been cool if they'd had the rest of the band in the video somewhere.
    I think the drummer was the second guy to get beaten at the end (with the afro)
    for god sake qotsa are a decent band. why does josh need to play up this "bad boy" image it's just kinda sad when you're in your 40's LOOK AT ME I CAN DRINK AND DO DRUGS AND BEAT PEOPLE UP! so edgy
    Yeah hanging out with Asian businessmen is clearly trying to be "edgy". Pull the stick outta your butt and lighten up man. The video was obviously in fun.
