The Flaming Lips have put a preview of their upcoming concert film online – you can watch it at the bottom of this page.

The film, titled 'Freak Night', chronicles the legendary psychedelic band's free concert in Oklahoma City on October 26, and is reportedly available via the band's website next week. No release date has been officially announced.

Tweeting stills from the concert movie, frontman Wayne Coyne wrote: "Freaky shit from Freak Night!!!Comes out next week motherfuckers!! Halloween for Christmas!!"

The preview clip shows the band introducing themselves at the beginning of their free concert, which was held in the Oklahoma City Zoo Amphitheatre, and Wayne Coyne venturing into the crowd in his trademark hamster ball.

Last month, Wayne Coyne found himself at the centre of a bomb scare. The singer was stopped at Will Rogers airport in Oklahoma City on November 10, after a dead grenade in his hand luggage set off alarms at a TSA checkpoint.

Wayne was on his way to Los Angeles to catch a preview of the new Flaming Lips musical Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots, and told police that the grenade was given to him at a party as a joke. Coyne was released once the TSA found that the grenade was harmless. Several flights were delayed as a result.

Coyne recently revealed that their new the album was inspired by band member Steven Drozd when he was in the middle of a serious drug addiction, from which he has now recovered. Coyne added: "It was probably the worst time of his life. I knew he was really, really struggling. He was in a bad way."
