As the U.S. embraces onto British rockers Foalsanti-corporate single “Inhaler,” the band has marched forward with the release of a provocative video for the song “Late Night” as seen here.

In the definitely NSFW video, viewers are given a somewhat too-close-for-comfort look at several sexual scenarios going on simultaneously in a Romanian apartment building while Foals play live in a club downstairs.

As a businessman drinks himself into oblivion in the club, a woman gives an excruciating birth in the apartment above. As the camera continues piercing the walls between units, it reveals a couple having rough sex while another gent experiments with auto-erotic asphyxiation.

In the end, director Nabil Elderkin neatly ties the band together with each sexual scenario in one powerful crescendo. As one YouTube viewer commented, the video explicitly conveys three stages of life: conception, birth and death.

Kicking of today on their home turf of the U.K., Foals will support their new album Holy Fire with a comprehensive international tour with The Neighbourhood, Surfer Blood and Blondfire opening select dates.
