Watch QOTSA's Josh Homme host fake infomercial for new Scissor Sisters album
Queens Of The Stone Age's frontman Josh Homme has taken it upon himself to host a spoof infomercial advertising the new Scissor Sisters album, 'Magic Hour', which is out Monday (May 28).

Scroll down to watch Homme present the tongue-in-cheek clip, in which he says the album is "dedicated to get you on the dancefloor and keep you on the dancefloor. Forever." He also calls the record a "combination of rhythm and romance like you’ve never heard before".

'Magic Hour' features collaborations with Pharrell Williams, Diplo, BoysNoize's Alex Rihda and Azealia Banks, as well as Calvin Harris, who co-produced the lead single 'Only The Horses' along with frontman Jake Shears. Speaking about the album, Shears said: "It's a sweet joyful mélange of beat-driven future-pop. It style-hops all over the place unabashedly."

Earlier today Scissor Sisters announced a UK and Ireland tour for October. The gigs kick off at Dublin's Olympia venue on October 1 and run until October 23, when the band headline London's Roundhouse venue.

Tickets go on sale on Friday (May 25) at 9am (GMT). To check the availability of Scissor Sisters tickets and get all the latest listings, go to NME.COM/TICKETS now, or call 0871 230 1094.
