Arctic Monkeys have unveiled a new video to accompany the band's next single 'Suck It And See', which is due for release on October 31st.

Directed by Focus Creeps, the video features the first major acting role for Arctic Monkeys' drummer Matt Helders.

In the words of the directors the video was:

"Inspired by past "lost weekends" in LA, from Lennon to Lemmy, the music video for the "Suck It And See" imagines: what if a rock and roller were lost altogether and never came back? The video is a behind the scenes fragments of Matt Helders' outlaw "lost weekend" out in the Wild West.’

Taken from the band's latest album of the same name, 'Suck It And See’, will be available on 7” and digitally from October 31st. The single will be backed by brand new song ‘Evil Twin’.

Arctic Monkeys hit the road later this year for a UK arena tour, with support from The Vaccines and Smith Westerns.
