Arctic Monkeys release new video and tour details

I'm completely ashamed to admit this but I kind of forgot about The Arctic Monkeys. Nothing to do with them, they just kind of dropped off my radar after the release of their second album and I never heard about them again. So low and behold when I read that their newest song "Brick by Brick" (off their upcoming fourth album) has a music video. The new song is cleaner than I remember the band sounded but still has the appropriate amount of hard rock grit, that fans have come to love. The new song sounds a little like a combination of psychedelic and surf rock so it's no wonder the video features shots of the band on the beach in what would appear to be Los Angeles. The other half of the video is strangely enough just a vinyl record spinning around, along with some quick flashes of the band performing, and some recording equipment. It all makes sense this sort of weird way. Enjoy the video for Arctic Monkey's "Brick by Brick":
