WATCH: Arctic Monkeys Drive Around Los Angeles In “Black Treacle” Video

Arctic Monkeys have released yet another music video in support of their latest album, Suck It And See. The music video is for their mellow ballad "Black Treacle." The video was directed by Focus Creeps, who also directed the videos for "Suck It And See," and "Evil Twin."

"Black Treacle" will be released digitally and in a "7 on January 23rd. The single will be accompanied by a track, "You And I," by Richard Hawley and The Death Ramps.

The video takes place in Los Angeles and follows the drummer, Matt Helders, as he escapes prison, is driven around by Alex Turner whilst he makes out with a lady of the night, and is stalked by what appears to be a runaway bride. Catch the video below, expect to catch Helders wearing one of those neon orange jumpers.
