It’s been a while since we’ve had new music from the Red Hot Chili Peppers, but anyone who’s been paying attention has noticed they are about to return. The band have already shared a few tracks (as well as some car karaoke with James Corden) from their new album, The Getaway, and today they share their first music video in 4 years for leadoff Getaway single, “Dark Necessities”.

Watch the video (which was directed by actress Olivia Wilde) below and pickup The Getaway when it gets released tomorrow, June 17th, via Warner Bros. Records.

The Chilis are also about to head out on tour later this month so if they’re coming to your town, be sure to check them out. See the band’s tour dates below.
