The track marks the first taste of new music from the Josh Homme-fronted group and is taken from the band’s forthcoming new album ‘…Like Clockwork’.

The gig in Sao Paulo was the rock band’s first live performance since a string of dates in 2011 to support the re-release of their 1998 self-titled debut album.

Last year’s Lollapalooza in Chicago saw sets from Black Sabbath, Jack White, Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Black Keys, At The Drive-In, Bloc Party and Franz Ferdinand.
