Queens of the Stone Age are not interested in making G-rated videos.

Case in point: “Smooth Sailing,” their new music video. The masterfully shot clip follows a well-dressed Josh Homme as he spends an incredible evening with a group of typically docile businessmen. But when their night of karaoke turns to drugs and some delirious drinking, things quickly spin out of control. The merry band of revelers get far more than they bargained for.

The band is calling the video their “drinkingest, druggiest, deathiest mini-movie to date.”

“Smooth Sailing” was directed by Hiro Murai, whose past credits include Usher‘s “DJ Got Us Falling in Love Again” and Earl Sweatshirt‘s “Hive.”

In addition to newly announced dates in Montreal, Bangor, Maine, Port Chester, N.Y. and Philadelphia, Queens Of The Stone Age have begun to confirm details of a South America tour for this fall, including stops in Brazil, Argentina, Colombia and Uruguay.
