Queens of the Stone Age Get Rowdy in New 'Smooth Sailing' Video


Queens of the Stone Age's first Billboard 200-topping album "…Like Clockwork" may have dropped nearly a year ago, but Josh Homme and company are still going hard at getting the word out. The alt-rockers have dropped a new music video for the silky, seductive track "Smooth Sailing."

Along with a group of businessmen, QotSA frontman Josh Homme is up to no good -- think "Wolf of Wall Street"-style debauchery. A few too many drinks at karaoke turns into harder drugs, beat-downs and cars driven with open liquor bottles at hand. The following morning, the boys have a little unplanned work to sort out.

The video was directed by Hiro Murai, who previously worked on music videos like Earl Sweatshirt's "Chum," St. Vincent's "Cheerleader" and David Guetta and Sia's "She Wolf."

Queens of the Stone Age are set to play Coachella the next two weekends, followed by a few more American dates, and a lengthy tour across Europe that will take them to the final week of August.

Last June, "…Like Clockwork" debuted atop the Billboard 200 with 91,000 units (including 12,000 vinyl copies) sold in its first week, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
